  • If liquids are spilled on the floor, they should be mopped up and a wet floor warning sign posted.Wear slip proof, close-toed, supportive shoes. Shoes should have cushioned insteps and slip-resistant solesMake sure proper matting is covering floors- non-slip floor mats ensure that spills don’t become slips
  • Knife safety will be reviewed in depth during the knife skills unit, this is a brief reminder
  • Comfortable, supportive shoes are essential for kitchen workers due to long periods of standing.Moving and stretching frequently and rotating tasks can help workers avoid static postures and fatigue. To reduce overreaching, workers should keep their frequently used items closest to them and store seldom used items further away. Proper lifting techniques when moving heavy pots and food items can prevent strains.
  • . Cooking equipment and vents should be cooled before cleaning them; it is best to clean equipment at the start of a shift.Fire safety will be covered in depth later in the unit.Other heat sources include boiling water, steam baths, sinks and dish washers. Reaching over boiling pots and hot water sources can lead to severe burns from steam. When opening pots or steam baths, workers should stand to the side and use the lid as a shield.To prevent fires, workers should monitor cooking food carefully. Hot grease and oil should never be left unattended. Oils and grease should be cooled before transporting them. Grease traps and grill surfaces should be cleaned frequently and flammable items should not be kept near flames or heat sources. It is important to know and practice emergency procedures, first aid, and how to use a fire extinguisher.Wearing close-fitting sleeves prevents catching them on pot handles, oven and stove knobs, or dangling them in flames or hot oil. Shoes should have cushioned insteps and slip-resistant soles. Aprons provide an added layer of protection from splashes of hot water or grease. Hand mitts and pot holders should be used when handling hot items
