2. Report any safety issues to your manager immediately.
Never use a lid or wrap to cover a pan while it is cooking. Hot water will accumulate on it and could spill and burn you.
Use caution when opening the doors.
Steam will be released.
When using the upper units, exercise caution when removing the pans.
ALWAYS wear oven gloves when working with hot foods or pans to prevent burns to your hands or forearms.
When operating or cleaning a slicer, a mesh safety glove MUST be worn. A latex or plastic glove may be worn underneath.
Unplug the slicer when you are cleaning it.
Use automatic slicing features when slicing.
ALWAYS wear oven gloves and/or sleeves to protect your hands and forearms when working with hot ovens and trays. Pot holders are not enough!
ALWAYS let fellow staff members know when you are removing hot food from the oven.
Carol, I’m taking the cake out of the oven.
NEVER put a pan taken directly from the oven onto the drain board by the dish area. It should be placed in the sink, sprayed with water to cool it and then handled and washed.
USE proper amounts of bleach or sanitizer
When walking behind another employee, let them know you are there. The phrase “Behind you” works fine.
If you spill something, or see a spill, clean it up immediately to prevent someone form slipping on it.
When going from our quarry tile floors in the kitchen to the smooth tiles in the cafeteria, be very cautious. If your feet are wet, the smooth tiles will be very slippery.
Learn to lift properly. Use your legs, not your back.
Handle knives properly. ALWAYS wear a safety mesh glove when using a knife. ALWAYS pick up by the handle and carry with the tip pointed to the ground. If a knife falls, DO NOT grab it! Let it hit the ground and then pick it up, clean it and use it.
Know evacuation routes in your kitchen.
Use cleaning products as per instructions. Know where MSDS information is and how to use it.
Hold a safety meeting to allow all employees to give their viewpoint on potential issues.
