Why It Is Smart to Keep First-Aid in Your Kitchen

If you think about it, the kitchen is a very hazardous place – full of knives of all sizes and other sharp implements, hot burners and steam, boiling liquids, and glassware, bowls and dishes that can break into shards.

It’s always good to practice safety measures, and one of the places it is most important to do that is the kitchen. You should never carry glass or slice things when your hands are wet. Be mindful of hot steam when lifting lids. Always pay close attention to whatever it is you are doing, no matter how insignificant it may seem, because in the kitchen, virtually anything can happen.

Hopefully you will remain safe at all times, but there are a few things you should have on-hand in your kitchen case of emergency. Of course you should keep a fire extinguisher in your kitchen, but don’t forget the first-aid products. There are a number of incidents that could require the use of easily accessible Band-Aids, burn ointment and antiseptic.
