Effective Commercial Kitchen Safety Prevents Injuries And Saves Money

No one wants their employees to get injured on the job. Considering the current climate of labor shortages and rising premiums, no one can afford it to happen, either. Total Oil Management can help you take control of your kitchen safety and reduce the risk of costly employee injuries.

Safer Kitchens = Greater Productivity

Back-of-house workers typically have to lug 35-pound jugs of oil to the fryer, manually top off filtered oil, and clean up hot oil spills. Instead of creating delicious food and performing meaningful tasks, these tasks add up to wasted time and a dangerous recipe for slips, falls, and burns.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 31% of reported injuries in food service establishments resulted in days away from work. Total Oil Management automates the entire dangerous process of cooking oil handling, keeping your employees safer and more productive.

Safer Kitchens = Savings In Workers’ Comp

Not only do injuries result in staffing shortage headaches, they’re also costly. In fact, the average cost per worker compensation claim is just over $42,000, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). Burns, slips, and falls are even costlier than average: Burn incidents average over $58,000; while slips and falls average over $47,000.

It’s only common sense that reducing or eliminating these types of injuries saves money.

Safer Employees = Engaged Employees

Dealing with hot, messy cooking oil is one of the most dreaded tasks in any commercial kitchen. And no wonder: Not only is it a real time waster, but it’s also potentially dangerous.

Employees who feel safe because they’re free from these onerous tasks are inevitably more engaged. And in a tight labor market, retention is critical to your bottom line.
