abstract

A 27 month old boy sustained burn injuries from a consumer electric cooker which was pulled off a kitchen countertop. Approaches utilized in the safety analysis include accident reconstruction, critical accident statistics analysis, UL 1083 standard research, and an evaluation of design alternatives. This paper investigates the safety implications of the new UL required break-away power cord for electric cookers/deep fryers.
