Working as a kitchen porter is full of challenges and demands. You might also be called a kitchen hand if you take on this job, but in either case you will get involved with cleaning and washing up – some of the more unsavoury tasks, you might say. You might also be called upon to get involved with basic tasks preparing all kinds of different foods as and when required.
Since you will be working for a specific employer, it is not unreasonable to assume your employer will give you basic training and instruction on how to go about your job. They should teach you how to use any type of equipment that might be necessary, and provide a workplace that is always safe.
How many people have reason to claim kitchen porter injury compensation?
It is heartening to know that very few kitchen porters are injured in any way while they are on the job. However, if their employer is negligent and does not provide a safe place of work, or the appropriate training that would be required, there is a greater chance that someone might be injured as a result.
Kitchen porter injury compensation could potentially be paid for any injury that might result from someone else’s negligence. Since it can be difficult to work out whether an injury was caused by someone else, it is usually best to consult a professional in this area. Someone working for a company such as Accident Advice Helpline will have the depth of experience required to ensure the appropriate advice is given.
