It should come as no surprise that in the food and restaurant industry, there are many incidences of slip and fall injuries. From constantly hurrying from the kitchen where grease spills are prevalent and dishes are washed to taking your tables trays of water and food, there is plenty of room for accidents in a restaurant. Below we have preventative steps your restaurant and yourself should take to protect yourself from a slip and fall injury.
- Wear appropriate non-slip footwear when serving in a restaurant. These shoes not only protect your feet from spills and sharp objects in the kitchen but also work great at combating falls. Due to the heavy duty material that these shoes are made from, they help to prevent slipping on water and other similar materials often found in the food industry.
- For restaurant owners, it is imperative to put up safety cones for areas that are prone to slipping accident. It is also necessary for the safety of your employees and guests to put up warning cones for other sections of the restaurant that are currently hazardous due to spills or messes that haven’t been properly cleaned.
- Since the kitchen area is a busy environment, it is a good idea to invest in staff members that are solely responsible for cleaning and keeping the kitchen safe.
