Safety in the restaurant workplace isn’t the most glamorous subject in the world, but it is one of the most important. Everyone has a right to safety when working in your restaurant and the protocols you put in place can define your company’s workflow and affect your bottom line.
Below are some of our top tips for making sure your staff follows the rules you set for them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” This is especially true when it comes to working safely. If you don’t follow your own rules, you’ll struggle to create a true culture of safety in your restaurant.
No one likes to be talked down to. Take time to explain why each rule is in place. Once your team knows exactly why a safety rule exists, it’s far more likely that they’ll stick to it.
Find as many opportunities as possible to praise staff who are following your program well. And remind employees everyday the importance of think safe, work safe, and be safe.
