Unfortunately though, that long-loved tradition is also the cause of tons of hand and wrist-related injuries each year. In fact, Thanksgiving sits near the top of the list of dangerous holidays thanks to hazards like these.
To avoid a Thanksgiving feast fiasco:
- Don’t get distracted from carving because you’re watching the kids, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade or that big game. Staying focused on the task at hand can help prevent dangerous injuries.
- Make sure your utensils are sharp. If the knife is dull, you’re more likely to press down harder, upping the chances of slips and cuts.
- Make sure the cutting board, counter, or table you’re using is dry before carving.
Always carve away from yourself.
