Always keep safety in mind when working in the kitchen

A lot of accidents can happen in the kitchen. Work to make safety a priority.

When you’re working in a restaurant, it can be a very fast-paced environment for all employees. Running around the anti-fatigue mats of the kitchen and serving areas are common practice, which can leave a lot of room for potential injury. However, anti-fatigue mats can reduce the chances of taking a spill, because they provide extra traction. Still, it’s important to train employees about the right ways to move quickly while in the restaurant business.

According to Foodable, when dealing with food it’s important to move at an accelerated pace, but it’s also important to know the task at hand you’re trying to fulfill and work to achieve it. Also be sure to communicate when you’re moving in and around the kitchen, calling when you’re behind someone, particularly if you’re holding food, to make sure there is no unnecessary collision.

Workplace Safety Advice reports you should always communicate when you’re handling something hot, particularly if it can splatter easily, as it could potentially harm your coworkers while in transit. Instead of your normal quick pace, be sure to handle things delicately. Even if it’s not a liquid, certain foods can easily splash, according to the news provider, so it’s important to make sure you keep yourself and coworkers safe.
