Are you prepared or ready today to deal with a burn or scald injury, that could easily befall a toddler in your kitchen?
A burn or scald injury happens in seconds,and injuries of varying severity occur every day in Ireland as a result of burns and scalds, many happening in your good old kitchen. A fact of life!
Us grown ups understand dangers and the need for caution, but a toddler is only learning to start out in life, is playful and inquisitive, and unfortunately is at the mercy of risks and dangers of all sorts in your kitchen that could easily escalate into a burn or scald injury.
A lot of people do not know that when it comes to something as simple as an unexpected accidental spill on a child involving just an everyday cup of tea or coffee, that this is hot enough to scald a baby or child seriously.
So imagine the numerous other risks and dangers lurking in your kitchen:
- Deep fat fryers;
Contact with hot surfaces
Contact with electric or other hobs
Steaming pots and pans
And many other risks besides………
Kitchen surfaces or appliances do not have to be extremely hot to cause terrible injuries to babies or young kids simply because kids skin is thinner than us grown ups have and thus children can suffer burns and scalds very quickly.
