What are some common lesser-known kitchen accidents?

A commercial kitchen is a dangerous place by nature. If you work in a kitchen in Texas, then you probably know all about the risks of getting burned and slipping and falling. However, there are also many hidden risks that you may not even think about. The Food Network points out three situations that you may not even think about when you consider kitchen hazards.

One of the most dangerous ingredients in the kitchen is a hot pepper. If you do not use gloves when handling them, you put yourself at serious risks for burns. Touching your eyes, nose or mouth after touching a pepper can cause major harm. Even in a kitchen of professionals, this mistake still occurs, so be careful when working with peppers.

You probably use cutting boards every day during the course of your work. They may actually be a danger. If you use a cutting board on an unstable or slippery surface, you put yourself at risk of getting cut. Always make sure the surface is stable. If it is slippery, put something down under the board to give it traction.

Finally, you probably realize the risks of getting cut when using a knife, but one particular situation is especially dangerous and common. It is cutting a bagel. It is very tempting to hold the bagel in your hand to cut it. This is a huge no-no. You should always lay the bagel on the counter and cut with the knife perpendicular to the work surface.

These are just a few of the kitchen hazards you may not think about when the subject comes up. All it takes is one slip and you or someone else gets seriously injured. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
