Health and safety are always at the forefront of our minds with every job we complete. In working commercial kitchens, hazards are present all around. Undertaking risk assessments and making sure you have the right safety equipment in place, can save lives and avoid nasty incidents.
Your legal obligations as a business
Just recently, Pret A Manger found itself in the public spotlight for overlooking basic safety measures and endangering a member of staff. An employee became trapped in a walk-in freezer with no means of raising the alarm. Fortunately, a colleague found the trapped worker who was then treated for hypothermia. The outcome of this situation? A traumatised victim and an £800,000 compensation award for overlooking basic safety measures.
