Put a guard over stove controls if they are within a child’s reach. Use the back burners only if possible and keep all pan handles turned to the back of the stove.
Put safety latches on all cabinet doors. If you have open shelves, move small items and breakables out of them. Be sure that free-standing units are securely fastened to the floor or wall so they will not tip over or fall.
A switch lock on the garbage disposal will keep fingers and other inappropriate items from being ground up.
Locks should be put on doors of ovens, dryers, dishwashers, etc.
Never leave cleaning solutions around where children can spill them or get in them.
