Welcome to the foodservice industry in 2023, where finding ways to retain your staff is one of your top priorities.
No matter the business, no matter the location, owners and operators are dealing with the same stresses of foodservice employee retention. Now, there are plenty of ways to keep your team members on board, but the one we want to focus on is safety.
A safe and worry-free environment allows employees to feel comfortable where they work. This is especially true for individuals working in foodservice. The list below is just some of the most common kitchen concerns:
- Cuts, lacerations, or punctures
- Trips, slips, or falls
- Burns from fire, grease, or hot surfaces
- Smoke inhalation from fires or improper ventilation
All of these concerns are preventable, as long as the proper precautions are taken. Keep knives sharp and avoid using old or dull options so there isn’t a struggle to cut through food, and always store knives in plain sight. Clean up spills as soon as they happen, and enforce a dress code that includes slip-resistant shoes. Invest in ventless, fully-enclosed kitchen equipment that not only filters smoke and toxins from the air, but also contains fires and stays cool to the touch.
We know the struggle of foodservice employee retention can really take a toll, but there are ways to keep it from happening. By investing in safe and reliable kitchen equipment, owners and operators can greatly reduce the risk of many of the issues listed above.
