8 ways to make your kitchen safer

Secure dangerous appliances

Sharp objects, whether they are utensils or parts that belong to appliances, should always be secured.

Sharp kitchen tools — like knives, scissors, or even forks, and glassware that could shatter into sharp pieces — should be secured out of your child’s reach. Along with these items, you should secure appliances that have sharp edges, like food processors, because small, curious hands might find their way into a dangerous spot.
