Take care when cooking

Cooking safety

  • Cooking is one of the leading causes of fires in homes. 
  • Stay alert and don’t get distracted whilst cooking. Most kitchen fires occur when people leave things unattended.
  • Don’t leave children alone in the kitchen.
  • Keep the oven, hob and grill clean. A build-up of fat and bits of food can start a fire.
  • Keep tea towels and cloths away from the cooker.
  • Keep electrical appliances and leads away from water.
  • Switch off all non-essential appliances at night.
