Working in a school kitchen can be a demanding job that requires you to have a wealth of different skills to draw on. Depending on your qualifications and experience, you may be able to get work as a school cook or as a school kitchen assistant. In either case you need to be prepared to work in demanding surroundings and to prepare and cook food according to menus you create.
The duties you will undertake will depend on your exact role. However, regardless of those duties, you should be able to work safely without fear of being injured in any way. Most people working in these roles will be able to do just that. However, there are times when people are hurt at work, and these injuries might keep them from returning for a while.
Examples of likely injuries
Working in any kitchen can be demanding. You might end up being cut by a knife or experience burns or scalds. There could be a chance to be injured by slipping over on a wet or slippery floor, if something has been spilled there.
As you can see, there are all kinds of situations in which you might be hurt while working in a school kitchen. If you do receive injuries in this setting it is only right to wonder whether school kitchen injury compensation could be a possibility for you.
