Case study: Leaks and spills cause slip

Arm badly burnt arm resulting from a slip accident in a kitchen

Rob, a commis chef, was walking past a deep fat fryer when he slipped, plunging his arm into boiling hot oil.

He suffered serious burns to his hand and arm and was off work for five months.

Water was pooling around the preparation areas, leaking dishwasher and steamers making the floor slippery.

No-one had dealt with the spill or reported the problem.

Solution: clean up spills quickly, report and fix leaks, use equipment correctly ask for training if unsure.
