  • Good Morning. It’s my pleasure to welcome you to this free Ohio Restaurant Association – Restaurant Education Series event. “Foodservice Safety Training: Preventing Costly Workplace Injuries” seminar. Offered to you through a partnership between the Ohio Restaurant Association, the Ohio BWC Division of Safety & Hygiene, RiskControl360, Careworks Consultants, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health., this course is designed specifically for the restaurant industry.
  • I’m Laura Morrison, Director of Member Services & IT with the Ohio Restaurant Association. My primary responsibility with the association is managing the ORA sponsored Workers’ Compensation Group Rating Plans and safety efforts.
  • Today’s session will be full of information that will help you better manage your business safely, reducing injuries and therefore reducing workers’ compensation costs. You’ll hear from these Experts: Discussing the legal aspects will be Keith Pryatel, Kastner, Westman & WilkinsPresenting Managed Care Organization information will be Ron Lucki, CareWorksFrom our safety partner, RiskControl360°, will be Jim Wirth and Brad Hunt Strategies to increase and support safe behaviors: Filling in for Ray Sinclair, with National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health who couldn’t be here today due to the Government shutdown is: Jim Wirth of RiskControl360°. Before we get started, I want to review a few housekeeping items and let you know how to best participate in today’s event. A few housekeeping items: You will need to be present throughout this session to receive credit with the BWC for meeting their 2-hour training requirement for companies experiencing injury claims. Restrooms are located out this door and down the hall. We will have a break today, however, please feel free to utilize these facilities and to get up and get a refill anytime during the session. The speakers today have provided their time and expertise as a service to you. Questions are great, however please know that the speakers may have to limit answers if they appear to be part of a larger discussion that will need to be held offline.In the folder provided to you are: a copy of all of the presentations, including blank areas so you can make notes if you choose and an agenda for today. You’ll be given a course evaluation. Please provide feedback in order for us to improve our offerings.  So let’s get started: The ORA is the largest non-profit trade association dedicated exclusively to the Ohio Foodservice industry, your industry.

    15. 15. Welcome BACK TO BASICS
    16. 16. AGENDA: Behavioral Considerations Hierarchy of Hazard Control Cuts & Lacerations Burns & Scalds Slips, Trips, and Falls
    17. 17. Or Is It?
    18. 18. It helps to understand that… • People don’t try to have an accident! • 98% are proud of what they do and where they work. • Understand peer pressure…bullies are all ages (see second bullet!) • People need and want to be trained. • They tell you they have experience but… • Consider ways to involve their families.
    19. 19. BUT… Controlling the Hazard is Number 1!
    20. 20. Hierarchy of Controls Elimination Substitution Engineering Controls Administrative Controls Personal Protective Equipment
    21. 21.  Elimination: Eliminating the hazard - physically removing it - is the most effective hazard control. Substitution: Substitution, the second most effective hazard control, involves replacing something that produces a hazard (similar to elimination) with something that does not produce a hazard.  Engineering Controls: The third most effective means of controlling hazards is engineered controls. These do not eliminate hazards, but rather isolate people from hazards. Capital costs of engineered controls tend to be higher than less effective controls in the hierarchy, however they may reduce future costs.
    22. 22. Administrative Controls: Administrative controls are changes to the way people work. Examples of administrative controls include procedure changes, employee training and installation of signs and warning labels. Administrative controls do not remove hazards, but limit or prevent people's exposure to the hazards.  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): PPE includes Kevlar gloves, flame and heat resistant aprons/sleeves, safety glasses, no slip shoes and other safety footwear. PPE is the least effective means of controlling hazards because of the high potential for damage to render PPE ineffective.
    23. 23. Food Slicers Box Cutters Knives Broken Glass
    24. 24. Powered Food Slicers Powered Food Slicers Amputations and cuts from powered food slicers are a serious problem for the food processing industry. The United States Department of Labor considers these machines to be hazardous, therefore, only employees over the age of 18 are permitted to operate them. Many injuries can be avoided by staying alert and taking appropriate safety precautions. Elimination: X Substitution: X Engineering: Utilization of guards Administrative: Proper training and alertness on the job PPE: Wear gloves made of Kevlar or other cut resistant material
    25. 25. Powered Food Slicers: Engineering Controls Utilization of guards
    26. 26. Knives and Box Cutters: Administrative Controls •Train employees on equipment and guard functions. •Train employees on de-energizing for cleaning, servicing and lockout/tagout. •Have a Plan of Action if guards malfunction or break. • If the equipment is older, retrofit guards or replace.
    27. 27. Knives & Box Cutters Knives & Box Cutters Two of the tools most commonly used by food service workers are knives and box cutters. Box cutters usually have removable razor-sharp blades you can change when they get dull. Many models have 3 retractable blade lengths, allowing you to vary the length of the exposed blade depending on the thickness and density of the material to be cut. Elimination: X Substitution: X Engineering: Safety Knives Administrative: Proper training, alertness on the job PPE: Wear gloves made of Kevlar or other cut resistant material
    28. 28. Knives and Box Cutters: Engineering Controls Utilize Box Cutters with guards
    29. 29. Knives and Box Cutters: Administrative Controls
    30. 30. Broken Glass Safe Handling and Cleanup of Broken Glass Broken glass is a major hazard not only for the workers handling it but also for consumers if, for instance, tiny glass chips contaminate food. Broken glass that is not disposed of properly can cause cuts and deep wounds, some even requiring amputations or leading to blindness. Elimination: X Substitution: Plastic Engineering: Heavier trash liners and/or separate receptacles specifically for glass Administrative: Proper training, alertness on the job, create an exposure control plan/procedures PPE: Wear gloves made of Kevlar or other cut resistant material when cleaning up broken glass. Protective foot wear
    31. 31. Broken Glass: Substitution Controls Substitute plastic containers instead of glass The absolute safest plastic numbers, for storing food are: #2, HDPE, usually an opaque plastic used for milk jugs, detergent bottles, juice bottles, toiletries and the like #4, LDPE, used for things like plastic bags, food storage, bread bags, some food wraps, squeezable bottles #5, polypropylene, used for a wide variety of applications such as yogurt cups, medicine bottles, ketchup and syrup bottles and straws
    32. 32. Broken Glass: Engineering Controls • Utilize heavier trash liners • Use separate receptacles for glass Supplier to the dairy and food processing industries since 1947 Toll Free 800-826-8302 http://NelsonJameson.com Enter your zip, select your material, find a facility, click and navigate. It's that easy! http://www.recyclerfinder.com/
    33. 33. Broken Glass: Administrative Controls • Create an exposure control plan/procedures. • Example of a plan / procedure:  Clear the area of patrons and personnel (utilize caution signs to aid communication)  If in the center of the broken glass, get assistance from an employee in the vicinity.  Before cleaning the glass utilize proper PPE (shoes, gloves, safety glasses, etc.)  Use a soft bristled broom to sweep all of the pieces into a dust pan or tray.  Properly dispose of the broken glass.  Report and document the incident.
    34. 34. Cuts and Lacerations: PPE Controls Wear gloves made of Kevlar or other cut resistant material when handling knifes, other sharp equipment or cleaning up broken glass.
    35. 35. Ansell is a manufacturer of hand and arm personal protective equipment. Safety Works is a joint venture of MSA and privately-held MCR Safety. The joint venture creates the first, full-line glove, garment and safety products company in the North American retail market.
    36. 36. Burns and Scalds: Grills, Burners, Fryers, Co oking Pots and Steam Potential Hazards: Any person working around heating equipment, like steamers, ovens and ranges, can potentially be burned. There are several ways that commercial kitchen employees can be burned. Elimination: X Substitution: X Engineering: X Administrative: Proper training, house-keeping and alertness on the job PPE: Hot mitts, heat resistant aprons, heat resistant sleeves, eye/face protection etc.
    37. 37. Hot Oil: Administrative Controls • Allow hot oil to drip completely off before removing the basket. • Lower food and utensils into hot oil slowly. • Dry food and utensils before putting them into hot oil. • Do not drop food into a fryer.
    38. 38. Steam: Administrative Controls •Keep clear when opening dishwashers. • Communicate to other employees to keep clear. • Do NOT put head, hands or torso over or near boiling water or anything that is steaming.
    39. 39. Hot Objects (plates, pots, pans, etc.): Administrative Controls • Do not leave handles protruding over counter or table edges. • Do not touch anything hot (If unsure, ask or check before handling). • Use the buddy system to lift heavy stock pots. • Consider the use of infrared thermometers. • Observe and adjust foot-traffic patterns.
    40. 40. Burns and Scalds: PPE Controls • Use proper PPE: hot mitts, heat resistant aprons, heat resistant sleeves, eye/face protection etc.
    41. 41. Slips, trips, and falls and contact with objects Elimination: Utilize proper storage to reduce clutter These are most common lostworkday injury event in the restaurant workplace. Most slips and falls are caused by water or grease on the floor. Therefore, these sources for potential accidents should be emphasized and preventative measures should be stressed. Falls on ice and snow outside in the parking lots (while going to the dumpster, etc.) are also quite common work-related injuries. Substitution: X Engineering: Deploying slip resistant floor mats Administrative: Proper training, housekeeping, communication and alertness on the job PPE: Slip resistant shoes and other safety footwear
    42. 42. Slips, Trips and Falls: Elimination Controls • Keep kitchens and store rooms organized • Do not block aisle-ways • Store materials and equipment properly on shelves (do not allow to overlap) • Keep cords clear of water and other liquids. • Keep cords clear of aisle ways and normal walking patterns. • Winterize outside surfaces / entryways
    43. 43. Slips, Trips and Falls: Engineering Controls • Utilize floor mats and runners to make floors less slippery, and reduce fatigue • Upgrade to a more slip resistant flooring • Use non-slip floor surface cleaners
    44. 44. Slips, Trips and Falls: Administrative Controls • Apply appropriate caution signs to communicate when an area is slippery or wet • Enforce a “spill clean up” policy • “Spot mop” during rush times to reduce affected surfaces • Change water in mop bucket often
    45. 45. Slips, Trips and Falls: Administrative Controls • Do not improvise: Use ladders to reach high places do not use trash cans, chairs, buckets, etc. • Keep ladders conveniently located • Train employees on proper use National Ladder Institute www.laddersafety.org
    46. 46. Consider Other Ladder Styles Look for these features: • Work platform • Deep, non-slip steps • Extended rail height • Wide stance • Lighter weight • Tool tray
    47. 47. Slips, Trips and Falls: PPE Controls Use of slip-resistant shoes

    63. 63. Thomas Cunningham, Ph.D. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Disclaimer: The findings and conclusions in this presentation have not been formally disseminated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and should not be construed to represent any agency determination or policy.
    64. 64.   The safety culture of an organization is the product of individual and group values, attitudes, perceptions, competencies, and patterns of behavior that determine the commitment to, and the style and proficiency of, an organization’s health and safety management (HSC, 1993). Or, the way we do things around here.
    65. 65.  John’s manager sees that John is chopping vegetables at an amazing speed…  Should the manager: A: Nod in approval; the food will be prepped on time B: Say nothing C: Tell John “Be Careful”; we don’t want him to cut himself and stop working D: Ask John why he is working so fast; try to understand why John feels like he needs to rush
    66. 66.  Attitude vs. behavior change  Behavior is easier to see, and easier to change  Change the behavior and attitude may follow
    67. 67. Attribution of the causes of injuries  Chance vs. “person” causes vs. latent causes  Look at the whole picture  Injury logs can help identify trends and problem areas.  Exploring and documenting near-misses Thorough walk-through  Identify trip/slip/fall hazards  Employee involvement for continuous improvement What types of controls can be implemented?  Ongoing monitoring and review to ensure controls are effective.  How can we be preventive rather than reactive?
    68. 68. Most Effective / Protective Elimination Substitution Engineering Controls Administrative Controls Personal Protective Equipment
    69. 69. Coworker reminder to use protective glove Employee safely cuts food Employee receives appreciative comment from manager
    70. 70.  Safety does not end with training  Must check for employee understanding  Have employees demonstrate safe behaviors  Practice with feedback as part of training  Integrate behavior-based safety coaching into the culture  Management commitment and employee involvement  Peer observation and feedback  Ongoing monitoring and review
    71. 71. Behavior Load appropriate? Back straight? Use legs? Hold load close to body? Shoulders and hips aligned? TOTAL Safe At-Risk Total Safe Behaviors / Total Safe + At-Risk Behaviors X 100 = % Safe
    72. 72.  Consult managers and employees to get their impressions of the problem areas and ideas / areas for improvement. e.g. Have them help to develop checklists  When people contribute to a safety effort, their ownership and commitment to safety increases. Employees communicate about safety  Perception of management/owner’s total buy-in for safety practices and procedures increases employees’ participation.  Unsafe behavior is a symptom, not the disease Unhealthy safety culture is a system problem
