    Safety tips: Cooking a full English breakfast


    Whether you work in a small café or a hotel restaurant, the full English breakfast is the sought-after staple of many people’s day. Getting it right is key, but staying safe and avoiding accidents at work is equally important.

    Avoiding accidents at work: Staying safe in the kitchen

    The most common accidents at work within the catering industry include:

    • Lacerations
    • Scalds and burns
    • Slips, trips and falls

    Many of these can be avoided by staying attentive during your shift and being aware of your surroundings. Knowing how to correctly use a knife and the equipment in the kitchen is essential, the latter of which should be shown to you during a detailed induction.

    Always wear protective clothing, including aprons, eye protection and gloves when dealing with heat. Remember also that oil reaches extremely high temperatures and can spit.

    Slips, trips and falls in the kitchen are common and can lead to a number of injuries, varying in severity. It is important that you maintain your kitchen and are aware of any spills that may cause you to slip.

    In addition, having a good sense of your surroundings and where benches and equipment are kept will also minimise your risk of injury.

    Who is to blame?

    When you are at work, your employer has a legal responsibility to ensure your well-being. If you feel that your health or safety has been jeopardised, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for the harm you have suffered. Your employer can be held liable if they do not provide you with adequate training in the role or with specific equipment, or if they fail to ensure your working environment is safe and maintained.

    So long as your accident at work occurred within the last three years and you are able to provide details and evidence to support your claim, you may have an eligible case to claim personal injury compensation.
