Any person who has worked in a kitchen knows: grease is seriously slippery. It’s often seen as an obvious fact of life, but slip and falls can be deadly serious in the workplace.

Furthermore regularly having to get your flooring renovated because of wear and tear from grease can cost you greatly, and can even leave you without income for an extended period of time. Luckily for you Walkaway Management Group of Arizona can help.
Finding the correct treatment
Daily operations can seem like an uphill struggle. Every morning you degrease the floors, but by the end of the night they’re just as slippery as they were at the start. If you can relate to this it is likely you are using the wrong treatment for your floors. Every type of flooring has its own needs, and having a firm grasp on those needs is the first step to finding the proper treatment. Additionally, finding the slip coefficient of friction of your floor through ‘BOT3000E’ testing can also give you exact figures as to how slick your kitchen is. Remembering to treat your floor every day as a vital method to maintain a safe working environment.
Keeping clean and sanitary equipment
It’s easy to take your sanitation equipment for granted. You may think that a mop can be used indefinitely. When in fact a mop degrades rather quickly. It’s lifespan will change between areas as well. Your kitchen’s mop needs to be changed once every two or three days. While a dining room mop can last a little over a week. Since it’s imperative you don’t cross contaminate your mops, try using a color-coding system. If your kitchen is stone, and your dining area is wood you cannot apply the same treatment. As it is grease becomes trapped in the fibers of your mop; meaning if cross contamination occurs you will increase the likelihood of a slip. Applying the respective color coding to your ‘Boost’ treatments also can make it easy to quickly remember where each product goes.
Staying to code
Vigilance is due-diligence! A slip and fall accident can destroy a local business. If an employee or customer slips and falls they are within their right to seek legal compensation. You can prevent a legal proceeding by taking preventative measures now. Testing your floors at minimum twice a year gives you hard evidence that your restaurant is a safe environment. Hanging safety information high traffic areas such bathrooms, breakrooms, and atriums is necessary as well. Be sure that said information is followed unscrupulously. If there’s a spill, stand a wet floor sign close by for at least thirty minutes after it’s cleaned. Creating ample time for the spill to dry. Giving your staff a regular shoe allowance can pay itself off as having comfortable and safe shoes will increase turn around and morale. Protect yourself by protecting your employees and customers.
