Restaurants are a great place to eat, socialise and celebrate special occasions. What we don’t always realise is how much work restaurant workers do in order for us to have a good night out.
Restaurants can be a dangerous place if health and safety rules are not adhered to. In order to avoid not only an accident at work claim but also a public liability claim there are certain things workers should keep out of the way of customers.
What items should be kept out of harm’s way to avoid an accident at work?
There are many things that should be kept out of the way of customers. The majority of these items are something that would cause a nasty accident at work claim if mishandled. This includes anything burning hot such as a boiling oven dish, hot oil or any naked flame (candles excluded). As well as this, restaurant workers should keep any chemicals out of the way of customers to avoid an accident at work injury for both customers and the workers. If these chemicals were to become spilt whether in the kitchen or the restaurant there could be several nasty accidents at work claims.
Anything else to avoid an accident at work claim?
Restaurant workers should also make sure that any spillages whether food or drinks, are cleared up straight away. These could not only cause the customer to have a nasty slip, trip or fall but one of the workers could sustain a nasty accident at work injury.
If you ensure these items are kept away from the customers everyone will have a much more enjoyable, hopefully accident at work free night.
