Common Sense is the best way to go
Paying attention to what is being done is important. The kitchen is loaded with appliances, water, sharp objects and other things that can cause injury. If one approaches kitchen tasks wisely by paying attention to each task, progress is made quickly and its more enjoyable.
One way of paying attention is to read the recipe(s) that are being made, and to get all ingredients and equipment out prior to starting. Not much is more aggravating then to have to stop and get things that are needed.
Knowing where to go for 1st aid if needed is important just as it is to know where the fire extinguishers are should you possibility need one.
