Garages

 

Garages are full of hazards and dangers. There is a lot of machinery and equipment around that could cause minor to severe injuries if misused. It is important to ensure you know what’s going on around you at all times and ensure that you and your colleagues are following all health and safety procedures relating to your workplace.

A few of the most common types of injury in a kitchen include:
  • Slips, Trips or Falls
  • Electric Shock
  • Cuts
  • Crush Injuries
  • Broken Bones
There are a few steps to take in order to keep everyone safe within a garage environment. These include:
  • Making sure all equipment is fully maintained and checked regularly
  • Ensuring all electric cables and other obstructions are tidied away in a safe place
  • Clean up any broken glass or other hazardous materials as soon as possible
  • Thoroughly clean all surfaces regularly to ensure cleanliness and reduce the chance of slips, trips or falls.

In the event of any accident at work we always advise you seek medical attention first. Make sure your accident is recorded in the accident book if not at the time of accident then as soon as possible afterwards.
