You can have a safer, smarter kitchen.
While the restaurant industry in America has a troubling safety record, we can and do take pride in providing products that increases restaurant’s and kitchen’s compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). You can make your kitchens safer for your employees. You can reduce the risk of accidents, and at the same time, boost the profitability of your business. And Restaurant Technologies can help.
With your kitchen operating at full force, grease is sure to build up in your hoods, flues and fans as a byproduct of cooking. Keeping your kitchen clean is the only way to reduce the risk of fire, ensuring a safe and efficient operation.
Traditional hood and flue cleaners send in a cleaning crew on a quarterly or semi-annual basis. They shut down your kitchen to scrape or wash away grease with harsh chemicals, often leaving behind a mess or damaged equipment.
The AutoMist system from Restaurant Technologies eliminates the need for these costly, messy cleanups by automating the entire process for a worry-free experience. AutoMist cleans your hood, flue and fan every day with a powerful spray mixture of detergent and water to prevent hazardous grease buildup.
With AutoMist, you can:
- Mitigate fire risk
- Prevent oil and grease buildup
- Eliminate the need for quarterly hood cleaning
- Increase kitchen efficiencies
- Maintain a clean and safe kitchen environment
- Be eligible for discounted insurance programs
- Use a sustainable solution with minimal impact on the environment
The AutoMist system minimizes fire risk in your restaurant every day by keeping the hood, flue, and fan area clean. With daily cleanings, grease is no longer accumulating over time. This keeps your restaurant – and everyone in it – safe.
Cooking oil handling and spills are at the root of restaurant employee accidents such as slips and falls, strain injuries and burns. But you can take action to reduce these risks in your kitchen.
Restaurant Technologies' closed-loop oil management system allows employees to safely and easily dispose of used oil and fill the fryer with new oil with the flip of a switch. No need to ever carry hot oil again. By creating a safer way to manage a risky and frustrating task, employees feel more engaged and satisfied with their jobs. By eliminating one of the most dangerous restaurant kitchen tasks, employees are no longer at risk for oil-related injuries like slips, falls, and burns.
One of our customers, a quick-service restaurant, carried out a study with their insurance company. They found that with Restaurant Technologies' Total Oil Management system installed:
- Burns from hot oil: 44% reduction
- Slips and falls: 21% reduction
- Back strain from lifting: 33% reduction
- 50%+ reduction in Workers' Compensation claims
- Increased employee satisfaction
- Overall dramatic reduction in risk while increasing customer and patron safety.
An automated oil management solution improves physical security by eliminating the need for employees to travel back and forth to the area of the rendering tank to dispose of oil packaging and waste oil. Often, this practice adds unnecessary risk and leaves the back entrance unsecured as employees haul oil containers and oil to the bins.
From an employer's perspective, fewer injuries and security risks translate to better peace of mind that employees are not hurt or victimized, fewer sick days, fewer Workers' Compensation claims, a better overall work environment and improved retention of employees.
