OSHA Restaurant Safety: Cold Storage/Freezer Safety (Spanish) Mobile App
Restaurant workers may be exposed to cold temperatures from working in refrigerator, freezer, and other cold storage areas.
How does it work?
They can be trapped inside refrigerators or freezers if the door accidentally closes behind them. Trapped workers can be exposed to very cold temperatures and suffer from hypothermia. All cold storage areas need to have: Light inside, Latch inside and Axe/heated door seal. Condensation inside refrigerators or freezers can cause floors to become wet and slippery, leading to potential slips and falls. Child Labor Laws prohibit young workers younger than 16 from performing freezer or meat cooler work. Employees can prevent accidents and injuries while working with kitchen freezers and cold storage rooms by following the DOS and DON’TS given in the OSHA Restaurant Safety: Cold Storage/Freezer Safety (Spanish) mobile app. This app is in Spanish. You can Customize an app by editing one from the Application Store.
