Essay on “Accidents at Home” Complete Essay for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

Accidents at Home

Let us cite some examples of accidents at home. Cutting, burning, scalding, hurting to cause fracture and getting electric shock are some of them.

Let us consider the preventive aspect first. One must be careful in using cutting instruments in the kitchen. Use good tongs to remove hot vessels from the oven. Hot things must not be placed anywhere, otherwise one would get scalded. Steam  causes a greater injury than hot water so one must be careful where steam is involved. With hot oil care must be taken not to add water to hot oil when it is on an open fire because it will catch fire.

Falling down by false step is another accident. Bathrooms, poorly lit landing places, ill fixed mattresses on the staircase are the worst offenders. Oil drops or soap bits must not be dropped down in the bathroom as these may help slipping down.

Electrical appliances must have insulated or protective handles. When using the electric iron it is better to stand on a rubber sheet or dry wood plank. Medicines must be kept away from the reach of children and kept under lock and key. Leakage of gas should be checked to avoid some explosive accidents.

In all these cases by being a bit careful, many accidents can e avoided.
