Providing staff the proper restaurant equipment and supplies is vital for ensuring the wellbeing and safety of employees. More specifically, restaurants, hotels and just about every other place of business requires some degree of personal protective equipment (PPE) to reduce the risk of injury and keep workers as protected as possible from potential hazards.
Gloves and aprons help keep you in good health when it comes to cuts, burns, and boiling oil, but sometimes a little extra precaution is necessary. Finding and wearing the right protective clothing in the kitchen can save you a world of hurt. Bad knees? Buy yourself a pair of knee pads to take the stress off your joints when kneeling or doing repair work. Do a lot of chopping, slicing, and dicing? Full-length cut resistant sleeves can help keep your hands and arms out of harm’s way. Protective clothing was made for a reason, and no one likes being another restaurant injury statistic.
