(a) A microwave oven is safer than a conventional oven but position it carefully to prevent dislodging it.
(b) Where conventional ovens and cookers are used - gas heat is quicker to extinguish, uses a cooker guard rail, use the back rings/burners, turn saucepan handles away from the edge.
(c) Grill food instead of frying - avoid chip pans.
(d) Avoid carrying hot plates and pans; use a trolley to transfer food.
(e) Use an automatic cut-off cordless kettle - cordless irons are preferable also.
