In a busy commercial kitchen, getting the food out on time should be a top priority but not at the expense of your safety.  From sharp knives to fires and boiling liquids, you must take care as a chef or kitchen staff member. Luckily, there are a few easy ways that you can avoid accidents especially with the help of professional chefs wear.

Keep your arms covered to prevent burns

Kitchens are full of hot objects such as saucepans and stoves which makes it easy to get burnt. However, wearing a long-sleeved chefs jacket will keep your forearms covered so anything hot does not come into direct contact with your skin and cause burns. Additionally, it’s important to generally be mindful of what’s going on around you so you don’t accidentally run into anything scolding.

Wear comfortable and practical footwear

Dropping anything on your foot is going to hurt, but with dangerous objects all around you in the kitchen, practical footwear is a must. Invest in covered shoes so your toes are not exposed as well as non-slip soles to avoid slips, trips and falls. A good pair of shoes will also keep you comfortable when standing on your feet all day.

Prep the workspace before chopping

It’s tempting to quickly get out your knife block and start chopping ingredients but missing out important safety steps could result in cuts and other injuries. You should always get out a chopping board and place it on a non-slip surface so you have more control and don’t risk cutting your fingers! Knives should then be washed and replaced back into the chopping block or drawer.
