Restaurant Tips


31 JULY 2019


  1. Have a professional degrease your kitchen exhaust hood system every six months. Grease that accumulates in ducts, hoods, fans and vents can easily catch fire.
  2. Contact a professional to inspect your fire suppression system every six months. Ask the manufacturer or installer who they would recommend.
  3. Require your employees to take a food handling class. Your county’s Department of Health is a good place to start.
  4. Make sure employees where cut-resistant gloves when using knives. Stainless-steel mesh cutting gloves can help prevent cuts and injuries.
  5. Invest in anti-fatigue mats. Besides offering relief to tired feet, cushioned anti-fatigue mats can also help prevent slips and falls.
  6. Educate employees about proper clothing. Employees should wear aprons, shoes should have slip resistant soles and oven mitts should cover the forearms as well the hands.
  7. If your restaurant serves alcohol, have your employees take an alcohol awareness training class. Check in with your state’s alcohol or liquor control division to learn about classes in your area.
