    Restaurant accidents: Trips over carelessly placed items

    Employment in the catering industry can be a dangerous business. The employees in catering and hospitality are subjected to a very high risk of accidents at work, including slips, trips, and falls. In numerous instances, employers have failed to take proper regard of the health and safety of their staff with serious potential for injury. Below is an actual example, where serious negligence on behalf of the employer could have led to an accident.

    Restaurant accidents from tripping hazards posed by carelessly placed items

    Restaurant accidents can happen very easily if tripping hazards are not removed. If trailing wires are left for staff or customers to fall over, or stock is left in a walkway, someone could be seriously injured. As it is the legal duty of the owners or managers to ensure that restaurant accidents of any kind do not happen, they could find that they are having to face a compensation claim.

    Local food inspectors visit restaurants and all other types of food outlets on a regular basis. They will report on hazards of any kind, and in the worst cases clause the eatery until the danger has been put right. This is because restaurant accidents can have devastating affects for the victim, who could be badly injured and maybe scarred for life if hot foods are involved in the accident.
