We all know that injuries can halt your business, and having the right protection in your fast-paced environment is critical. Start this year with a Tucker Safe Step review.
The Tucker SafeStep™ Program has helped many foodservice operators and owners evaluate their kitchen environments and the PPE they are using to avoid accidents or injuries. The Safe Step review program can do the same for your business, whether you manage one or many locations.
The Tucker SafeStep™ Program includes the following steps:
Step 1 – Injury Evaluation: We work with you to review past burn and cut injuries, human factors, current safety practices and personal protective equipment (PPE) being used. We give you our analysis, conclusions, and recommendations based on those findings and our expertise in food service operations to prevent future injuries.
Step 2 – Kitchen Evaluation: We do an evaluation of your types of equipment and equipment position, evaluating hot spots, traffic patterns, and other hazards. Each work area and equipment configuration poses different PPE needs, such as fabric, temperature, insulators, wearability, washability, steam and vapor protection, etc. During the evaluation, we will make note of safety training gaps or unmet safety needs and share those findings with you.
Step 3 – Product Recommendations: After we study your injury history, equipment in use, and kitchen layout, we will present you with our recommendations (both product and process) and an explanation of why we chose each piece. Our goal is to maximize safety, efficiency and value for your business.
Step 4 – Training Seminars: In partnership, we then train your managers and their team in properly using each garment, product labeling, good safety practices, and injury prevention.
Step 5 – Support: Safety is both a goal and a process. We offer continuing services for evaluating safety performance, procedural or material recommendations, safety training, and, should you need it, our complete support in any regulator issues that may arise.
Ensure your kitchen has what it needs to improve safety and cost performance.
