    Training restaurant staff – injury lawyers in Lancaster

    If you own a restaurant or are in charge of training new staff, it is important that you train staff to be safe and productive whilst at work. The way you train staff will help to assure the success of your restaurant, as well as the safety of both your staff and your customers.

    If a customer gets food poisoning due to the negligence of your staff then you may find yourself looking at a compensation claim, and this can negatively affect your business both financially and in the eyes of the public.

    Even if your chefs and management are safe, a member of staff can cause an incident if they are not properly trained. Here are some tips on appropriately training staff so that your restaurant can keep its good name.

    Lead by example

    Your staff learn what is ok and what is not according to how you behave. So everything you teach them has to be backed up by your own behaviour. Make sure you never go against your own training by neglecting to do something you have taught your staff to do, even if you don’t think anyone can see you. This also goes for safety rules in the kitchens and out of the public areas.

    Use long term staff to train

    As a busy manager it is likely that you won’t always have time to oversee new staff. You should enlist the help of long term staff to help to train new staff, and try to have them work alongside newer members of the team for the first few weeks. If you only rota new staff members on with older ones then they will always have someone they can refer to, and the right behaviours to copy as they go about their day.

    Don’t forget safety

    Whilst food hygiene and politeness to customers is important, being sure to be safe at all times is key. Make sure that your staff know how to protect themselves and customers by running through safety procedures and health and safety information from day one.
