Bacon is the perfect breakfast meat. It goes great in a sandwich, with a full cooked breakfast or chopped up in certain dishes. However, there are certain dangers of cooking bacon which can be more painful than a simple slip, trip or fall injury.
Hot oil hurts more than a trip injury
If you fry your bacon then you will probably already know that if it is too hot the oil spits and if it lands on your skin it can hurt. However, this is nothing compared with if you were to accidentally spill this hot oil on your skin. This would most likely cause you not only severe burns but also probably a fall or trip injury which may cause you to spill the oil in the first place.
How to cook bacon safely
If you want to cook bacon a different, safer method then you could try grilling. This is not only a healthier method as the fat drips off the bacon but also you are less exposed to the oil therefore, no burns or fall injuries.
However, if you really want to fry your bacon there are certain precautions you can take in order to avoid injuries such as burns or slips, trips and falls. Make sure your arms are covered so that the oil does not hurt you should it spit slightly. Also, ensure the pan is not too close to the edge so that you can’t accidentally knock it off or you can’t have a slip, trip or fall into it.
As soon as you have finished cooking the bacon put the hot pan somewhere safe and well out of the way. This is especially important if you have children as you do not want them to have a slip, trip or fall near the hot oil.
If you have had a slip, trip or fall within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim.
