Have you been hurt whilst working as a chef?
Although being a chef is a well regarded career, it doesn’t come without dangers. In addition to working in a very high pressured environment, you will also be required to work in extremely hot conditions and at a fast pace.
As many chefs use very sharp knives and implements, as well as hot pans and stoves, they can succumb to injuries from time to time. Whilst many chefs accept this as part of the job, it’s still important that your employer takes their health and safety duties seriously.
For example, they will need to ensure that people working in the kitchen get regular breaks and that they have the appropriate safety equipment. In addition to this, all the equipment in the kitchen must be thoroughly maintained to ensure that it’s safe.
Similarly, it’s essential that the food and ingredients are properly stored so they don’t cause illness among the staff or customers. Of course, it isn’t only the chefs that can suffer injuries whilst working in a kitchen or restaurant. The front of house staff, such as the servers, waiters and waitresses can also be hurt just as easily.
