Workplace hazards vary from industry to industry. While some types of work have a low incidence of on-the-job injury, some industries feature work that can be quite dangerous. In food service, Pennsylvania employers have a heavy responsibility to provide training and institute procedures that will keep workers safe. CONRAD INSURANCE is interested in helping you protect your bottom line through risk-management techniques. Communication and training are at the top of the list in this process.
Safety Training for Food Service Employees
A quick run through procedures in the kitchen isn’t sufficient to train your food-service staff. People learn through repetition and by following examples. Pennsylvania restaurant owners and managers need to set a good, clear example when it comes to safety in food service. Additionally, each worker should be attentively trained before working alone on any task in the kitchen. By creating a welcoming, open environment in your workplace, you can encourage employees who are uncertain about a particular procedure or safety instruction to ask questions.
Communication in Restaurants
Many times safety protocols aren’t followed simply because of a breakdown in communication. Safety rules and regulations need to be clearly communicated verbally. Additionally, clear, visible signage can help your employees remember and practice safety.
