I guess it's time to take the bull by the horns. Many of your Instructables have the potential to cause harm, especially to children. That doesn't have to be the case. We can have fun AND be safe! I make my living as a safety inspector in a Tool & Die plant. In the 16 years I've been there, their injury rate has dropped 30%. So I know what I'm talking about.
Hey folks, let's try to move the issue of safety from the back of our minds to the front! In this Instructable I will share with you some safety tips.
Step 1: Food Allergies are REAL!
Sometimes you all get so excited about your Instructable, you neglect to think of how dangerous it can be. Ask yourself if anyone can be injured if they follow your instructions.
If you are sharing recipes, be sure to include a warning that some people could be allergic some of the ingredients. This is especially important if you are using nuts, peas, fruit and wheat products.
Avoid this line of thinking: "Oh, it's not a problem for me, so why should it be a problem for someone else?"
Food allergies can be serious, folks. Think swollen throat! Think skin rash! Think anaphylactic shock (I know someone who nearly died eating fish)!
