Most burns are caused by over heated (hot) appliances, hot dishes, steaming water, etc. Lots of people get burned every year, and possibly die from them.
To prevent from getting a burn, avoid wearing, loose-fitting clothing, or any sort of long sleeved shirts. Hair can catch on fire too, so be sure to tie up long hair.
Try to avoid reaching over a hot surface, the heat can burn your skin or your clothing. And ALWAYS pick up pots or pans with oven mitts or pot holders. Safety always comes first!
Faucet water can sometimes get too hot. To avoid this happening, you should safely test the water to make sure it's not too hot before you stick your whole hand in.
To prevent fires like this, make sure when you're finished cooking that you turn off the units on the surface and the oven. Some units can stay hot for a while, even if they're turned off.
Always serve hot foods with care, a ladle, tongs, or even a fork can help transfer hot foods to a plate or cup. Be sure to protect yourself with oven mitts or pot holders, and make sure they're thick enough to protect you. And just know, for a fire to start, three things are needed. Fuel, heat, and air. But, fuel cannot burn without heat. That's about it! Thanks for reading.
