Solutions for a slippery restaurant in Tempe Arizona.
Anyone that has worked in a kitchen can tell you by heart: grease is seriously slippery. Its a notion that’s taken for granted, but we all know just how dangerous a slip and fall can be. An injury can not only lower the morale of your workers, but leave you legally susceptible. Additionally having to replace your flooring every few years due to wear and tear from grease is a hefty expenditure that can leave you without income for an extended period of time. Luckily for you Walkaway Management Group of Arizona can help.
Finding the correct treatment
Any worker knows that dailies can feel discouraging. It seems that every morning you degrease the floors, but by the end of the night they’re just as slick as they were at the start of the day. However it’s likely that this is because you’re using the incorrect treatment for your flooring. Every floor has it’s own specific needs. Learning what type of flooring is in your restaurant is the first step to finding the proper treatment. Learning the slip coefficient of friction of your floor through ‘BOT3000E’ testing can also give you an exact figure 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
Sanitary equipment is something that often gets ignored. It can seem like your mop is fine to reuse forever, as long as it cleans up messes at least. When in fact a mop degrades rather quickly over time. It’s number of uses dwindle between areas faster as well. Your kitchen mop-head should be changed once every two or three days. While a dining room mop-head can last a little over a week. Not letting these two cross contaminate is also necessary so using a color coding system can help. If your kitchen is Ceramic, and your dining area is Granite, you can not apply the same treatment. Likewise the grease from your kitchen will become trapped in the fibers of the mop; meaning that if used in the dining area you will likely increase the chances 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! Slip and fall accidents can be the end to a local business. If an employee or customer slips and falls they are within their legal right to seek compensation. You can prevent a fiasco by taking precautions now. Testing your floors at minimum twice annually gives hard evidence that your restaurant is a non-slip environment. Placing safety information visible to your customers and employees is vital as well. Hang a bulletin board in frequently utilized environments: bathrooms, breakrooms, and atriums. Be sure that said information is followed as well. Place a wet floor sign in the occasion of a spill, and let it remain for at least thirty minutes after cleaned. Giving your staff a regular shoe allowance can also increase not only their safety but turn around time as well paying for itself as a result. Protect yourself by protecting your employees and customers.
