4 Tips For Keeping Your Professional Kitchen Safe


When running a professional kitchen, safety should always be as high on the priority list as delivering great food. As your restaurant design professionals can share, one way to guarantee an accident-proof environment is to keep safety in mind when planning the layout of the room. Here are four tips for keeping your professional kitchen safe:

Install Proper Fire Equipment
As careful as you may be in the kitchen, you never know when a burner may malfunction or fry oil will overheat. To prepare for the worst-case scenario, buy proper fire safety equipment from your restaurant supplies company. This includes fire extinguishers and signs indicating how your staff should exit the kitchen if the fire worsens.

Treat Hot Cookware with Caution
You can never be too careful when it comes to removing hot pans from the stovetop. To avoid major burns from the handle or the contents inside, grip the handle of cookware with a heat-resistant pad or cloth. Always have plenty of these conveniently on-hand for your cooks.

Never Become Careless with Cutlery
Cutlery is one of the most obvious sources of harm in the kitchen. To keep your staff safe, make sure that they keep each knife at its respective preparation station. This will cut down on improper knife use and accidents that could occur while walking with knives in hand.

Place Mats on the Floor to Prevent Slips
Investing in inexpensive floor mats is a great way to prevent slips and falls in the kitchen. Advise your staff to clean up any spills that occur during food prep and to be careful when transporting liquids.
