It can be. Nachi excludes them from their standards. The presence of a screen, glass doors or both could be a good add.

Drew, I have a miscellaneous list for you if you can use it.


                                                                          NiFast Fire Safety

Every 15 seconds, a fire department responds to a fire somewhere in the United States. A residential fire occurs every 66 seconds. There is one civilian fire death every 118 minutes. There is one civilian fire injury every 18 minutes.

Fires are likely to start in many places in the home including the kitchen, living room, bedroom and storage areas such as, the attic, basement, workroom or storeroom. Causes of fire include overheated or overloaded electrical wire, cigarette ashes, smoldering ashes in the couch, sparks from the fireplace, unattended outdoor fires and barbecues.
Check the cords on all appliances. If they are worn or frayed.

Check for overload the outlets.

Make sure appliance cords are kept on the counter to prevent them from being pulled down by young children.

Check for storage over the stove. People get burned while reaching.

Check to see if curtains or towel racks are close to the stove.

Be sure a fire extinguisher is placed in the kitchen. Recommend a minimum 2A10BC extinguisher.

All cleaning products and other chemicals should be stored out of the reach of young children, not under the sink.

Be sure microwave ovens have room to "breathe," all the vents are cleared of obstructions.
Check for overloaded extension cords and outlets.
Check for extension cords under rugs or over hooks.
Are kitchen appliances – such as the coffee-maker, toaster oven, and microwave – plugged into separate receptacle outlets?

Does your family have a home fire escape plan that includes two exits, usually a door and a window, from each room?  :)

Are fire department’s emergency phone numbers listed and posted near a telephone?
