CHAPTER 3 - WORKPLACE SAFETY - Lancaster High School
CHAPTER 3 WORKPLACE SAFETY In Section 3.1, you learned the following: Restaurants and foodservice operations are responsible for providing a safe environment and ensuring safe practices for their guests and employees. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the federal agency that creates and enforces safety-related standards and regulations in the workplace.
The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires that all employers notify their employees about chemical hazards present on the job and train employees to use these materials safely. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) describe hazards of the chemicals in a restaurant or foodservice operation. Each product has its own MSDS. General safety audits give an overview of the levels of safety in a restaurant or foodservice operation. Safety audits cover facilities, equipment, employee practices, and management practices.
Accident reports are important because they signal that the safety program may need improvement. An emergency plan in a restaurant or foodservice operation protects property, workers, and guests in the case of an emergency or disaster. Protective clothing and equipment protect employees from potential hazards on the job. In Section 3.2, you learned the following:
Frayed cords, plugs with same-size prongs, too many plugs in an outlet, cracked switchplates, cracked receptacle plates, ungrounded plugs, and ungrounded outlets are electrical hazards that contribute to accidental fires. The different classifications of fires and fire extinguishers are class A (wood, paper, cloth), class B (flammable liquids, greases, gases), and class C (live electrical equipment) fires. Clean hoods and ducts at least every six months using a qualified cleaning contractor. Clean more often depending on use and grease buildup.
In the event of a fire, remain calm and start evacuating people immediately, call the fire department, shut off the gas valve, meet at the designated assembly point, and inform a firefighter if someone is missing. When cleaning up spills on the floor, verbally warn guests and employees, block the area, post a "Caution-Wet Floor" sign, and direct people around the spill. The safest way to use a ladder is for two employees to work together. One person should hold the bottom of the ladder and the other should climb up
and pass or receive items. Proper lifting steps include establishing a solid footing, aligning the body, making the lift, and setting down the load. Proper carrying procedures include looking for any hazards, using the whole hand to grip the load, keeping the load close to the body, keeping stomach muscles firm and tucking in the lower back, and moving the feet instead of twisting at the waist when turning. The correct and safe use of knives includes the following:
Keep knives sharpened. Never touch the sharp edges of knife blades. Use the knife for its intended purpose. Place a damp cloth under a cutting board to prevent slipping. Stop cutting and place the knife on a flat, secure surface if interrupted. Never leave knives soaking under water. Never try to catch a falling knife. Carry knives with the cutting edge angled slightly away from the body.
Store knives in proper racks, scabbards, or sheaths. In Section 3.3, you learned the following: First aid is medical treatment given to an injured person either for light injuries or until more complete treatment can be provided by emergency services. CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. CPR restores breathing and heartbeat to injured persons who show no signs of breathing or pulse.
