Are you in the service industry? Well then this blog is sure to come in handy. Here are some of our greatest tips on how to keep your work environment a safe one:
Blue Detectable Bandages
Have you ever been served a dish with something unpleasant and unexpected in it, for example, a hair? It completely ruins your meal and sometimes even your entire appetite. Could you imagine finding a bandage in your dish? Horrible thought, isn’t it? First Aid Canada proudly supplies restaurants with blue detectable bandages. These bandages are bright blue in colour and come in a variety of sizes and shapes to best suit your kitchen and prevent accidents.
Allergies & Epipens
Allergies are becoming more and more prominent and thus, the food service industry must learn to cope with different dietary requests. People with severe allergies are advised to carry an Epipen with them at all times; however in some cases some individuals fail to be prepared. Restaurants should always have an Epipen onsite to prevent liability for anaphylactic shock. First Aid Canada recommends purchasing your Epipen directly from the source: http://www.epipen.ca/
Standard First Aid & CPR Training
Hundreds of people can pass through a single restaurant on any given day and this creates a risk factor for likelihood of facing ant emergency your workplace. It is important to be safe rather than sorry when it comes to medical emergencies and that’s why public places should not only be equipped with the supplies needed to save lives, but the skills. It is recommended that restaurant workers be trained in Standard First Aid and CPR to prevent emergencies.
In addition to what is mentioned above it is now becoming more and more prevalent that restaurants contain an Automated External Defibrillator. These devices are not only easy to operate, but they also save lives. In the time it takes for someone to call an ambulance and for the response personal to arrive at the scene, an AED could have already saved that life.
