Defend against the Madness of March with these safety tips for preventing injuries and accidents during tournament time, or any time.
At the door: Place non-slip mats where floors tend to get wet. (Think: doors, soda machines, ice machines and sink areas … just to name a few!)
Proceed with caution: After mopping, in times of wet weather or whenever a hazard is identified, make sure caution signs are consistently placed. These signs alert customers AND employees to proceed carefully. Leave signs out until the hazard is no longer present.
Seating safety: Tables, seating and high chairs should be sturdy and well maintained.
Don’t forget the bathroom: Check bathrooms to make sure the stalls and sink areas are free of debris on a regular basis. Fix water leaks to prevent wet floors and make sure all bathroom fixtures are functioning properly.
In the kitchen: Sharpen knives, require use of cut resistant mesh gloves and teach proper slicing techniques to prevent cuts and lacerations.
Behind the scenes: Ensure cleanliness with a front and back of the store cleaning schedule.
Setting reasonable expectations: When demand is high, remind order takers to communicate increased delivery times to customers. Setting reasonable expectations with customers prevents your drivers from behaving in a reckless manner to meet deadlines.
