Slip-and-fall accidents are a common hazard in commercial kitchens. Fortunately, you can minimize or eliminate this risk by implementing safety measures and choosing the right materials for your commercial kitchen flooring.
Read on as Guardian Garage Floors, one of the top garage floor coating companies in the area, shares these tips to help keep your commercial kitchen an accident-free zone.
Keep Work Areas Clean
Commercial kitchens can get super busy with all the chopping, dicing, slicing and seasoning of foods. Because of this, it’s not uncommon for vegetable scraps and other bits and pieces to fall on the floor and other surfaces. Encourage the kitchen crew to regularly tidy up the kitchen and check the floors for food scraps, which can cause someone to slip.
Attend to Slip Hazards ASAP
Water, grease, sauces and other liquids must be cleaned immediately. Otherwise, someone may slip and suffer from a serious injury because of this. In addition, you should also consult an expert and have them assess the safety of your commercial kitchen.
From there, they can identify areas in the kitchen that may benefit from additional safety features. For instance, professionals may suggest installing polyaspartic floor coatings to add texture and traction onto your kitchen floors, which can help prevent slips and falls. Polyaspartic floor coatings can also be used as bathroom and garage floor coating.
Ensure That the Crew Is Wearing Appropriate Shoes
Everyone working in the kitchen should wear slip-resistant shoes. This will give them better grip on slippery floor surfaces and avoid accidents.
