Home and kitchen Safety during Ramadan Month

During Ramadan, people spend more time in the kitchen preparing iftar and suhoor meals. It’s important to prioritize home and kitchen safety during this time to prevent accidents and ensure everyone’s well-being. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  1. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby: In case of a fire, it’s important to have a fire extinguisher readily available. Make sure you know how to use it and that it’s in good working condition.  Don’t leave cooking unattended: Stay in the kitchen while cooking and keep a close eye on the food. If you need to step away, turn off the stove or oven.

  2. Keep flammable items away from the stove: Keep curtains, towels, and other flammable items away from the stove to prevent fires.
  3. Use timers: Use a timer to help you keep track of cooking times and prevent food from burning.
  4. Be mindful of hot surfaces: Use oven mitts or pot holders to handle hot pots and pans, and be careful not to touch hot surfaces or burners.
  5. Clean up spills and messes promptly: Clean up spills and messes immediately to prevent slips and falls.
  6. Store food safely: Make sure to store food in the refrigerator or freezer to prevent spoilage and food-borne illnesses.
  7. Use safe cooking methods: Use safe cooking methods, such as baking or broiling, instead of deep-frying, which can be dangerous.
  8. Keep knives and other sharp objects out of reach: Store knives and other sharp objects out of reach of children to prevent accidents.

By following these tips and being mindful of home and kitchen safety, you can help prevent accidents and ensure a safe and happy Ramadan for all.
