• Avoid making different levels in kitchen flooring as this could lead to a nasty fall, especially when one's entire attention is focused on reusing the milk which is overflowing.

• Do not locate a door or other implements between the cooking range and the sink, as distractions could cause accidents while transferring a hot vessel from the gas to the sink.

• Allow 15" between an inward opening door and the front of the unit. If space does not permit this, it might be better to have a sliding shutter or an outward opening door.

• The cooking range should be neither too near the door nor so near the windows that the flame blows out continually.

• There should be no curtains or inflammable objects near the cooking range.

• The gas cylinder, if enclosed should always be houses behind the shutter which has perforations. This permits the minor gas leakages to escape harmlessly into atmosphere. A closed cabinet might accumulates a dangerous dose of gas.

• Overhead wall units must be at least 6" narrower than the counter below, and be placed at least 18"-24" above the counter, to ensure that one does not receive a nasty bump on the head while working.

• To avoid colliding with the open overhead shutter, one option is to have roller shutters on the overhead cupboards.

• Long electric cords must be coiled and not trail dangerously.

• Power points should not be allowed to get wet. They should be at least 18" away from the source of water, and should not be installed at floor level where water may seep in when the floor is washed.

• Never pour water onto flaming oil to put it out. The flames can be extinguished by swiftly covering them with a lid that cuts off sir supply.

• Potentially dangerous items such as matches, knives or any other poisonous insecticides must be kept out of reach of little hands.
