  Safety First : Protect Your Child from Scalds

Every year over 10,000 children require hospital treatment caused by scaldings. Therefore children are at risk from hot liquids. A few even die, and a few scared for their whole life possibly caused by negligence.

Advise :
If you have an accident run cold water over the scald right away. Keep running the cold water until the " sting" goes away. Do not stop to remove clothing. get medical help for anything ,but the smallest accident.

NEVER :
NEVER allow pan handles to hang over the edge of the gas or electric cooker

NEVER leave a kettle close to the edge of a work surface. Never allow the mains lead to hang over the edge.

NEVER carry hot drinks close to children or hold a baby when you are drinking

NEVER run a child's bath without first testing the water

ALWAYS:
ALWAYS use the rear gas burners or electric rings whenever possible and always turn pan handles away from the edge of the cooker

ALWAYS use the kettle at the back of the worktop with the mains lead as short as possible and out of reach

ALWAYS keep hot drinks well out of children's reach and as far back on kitchen worktops as is practicable

ALWAYS run cold water into the bath first, then add hot water and mix well. Test with your elbow before you put baby into the water

All the above sounds very familiar, however if we practice these basic reminders, we are sure to ensure that any unforeseen accidents of this nature will not happen or very minimized at home.

WE CARE . TAKE CARE
