Kitchen Safety - Fundamentals - Canada


A senior living centre’s kitchen is not only where food is prepared, but it is also one of the busiest places in the centre. Staff members from the dietary department are tasked each day with preparing and serving residents’ meals. The kitchen environment may be crowded and even hectic as several staff members work in the kitchen at the same time. Each staff member may be performing a separate task, such as slicing meats, cooking on the stove, and serving meals. Because of the nature of the tasks and the equipment involved to complete those tasks, the kitchen is a high-risk area for accidents. Accidents, such as cuts, burns and fires, may occur when kitchen equipment is not used properly or the correct procedures to complete a task are not followed. These potential dangers, however, can be avoided, and accidents can be prevented. Depending on your job responsibilities, it is important that you are aware of the most common kitchen accidents and how to prevent them. It is essential that you are knowledgeable of and follow safe work practices to prevent these accidents from occurring.
