OSHA Restaurant Safety: Preventing Burns Mobile App
All employees that work around hot equipment or material are in danger of suffering severe burns.
How does it work?
It is important that restaurant employees and managers understand the dangers and take steps towards minimizing burns in restaurant works. An employee working around heating equipment, like fryers, ovens, microwaves, ranges etc. can potentially be burned. Burns may specifically come from hot oil, open flame, steam and hot plates. Servers can be burned while carrying hot plates or picking up plates that were under a heat lamp. Employees can help prevent heat burns by following the DOS and DON’TS given in the OSHA Restaurant Safety: Preventing Burns mobile app.
