3. Safety Measures to Protect Oneself While Cooking

a. Do not reach over an open flame with arm.

b. Do not cook wearing garments with large, loose sleeves. Roll sleeves up.
    Most severe burns are caused by clothing that has caught fire.

c. Do not mix hot oil with water. This can cause a hot oil burn.

d. Turn off flame before adding any food to hot oil to prevent flame from 
    shooting up and "tracking" the oil splatter. Flame should be adjusted 
    appropriately after food is in pan.

e. Watch for children "underfoot" while carrying trays with hot liquids or foods 
    to avoid tripping and causing a burn or injury.

f. Check oven and stove to be sure they are off when finished cooking.
