Prevent Grease Fires and Keep Your Kitchen Safe
A restaurant kitchen fire can risk lives, lead to lost revenues and ruin a business. Here are a few tips that restaurant owners can take to prevent a fire from occurring and avoiding disaster.
The majority of kitchen fires begin when flammable cooking materials, such as oil and grease ignite. Regular cleaning of exhaust hoods, filters and ventilation systems of grease buildup and debris can reduce the risk of fire.
Every commercial kitchen must have fire extinguishers that are tested, maintained and easily accessible. In addition, a fire-suppression system should be installed to automatically dispense chemicals to stop the fire.
Make fire safety a regular part of your training process. From evacuation procedures to storing flammable materials, awareness is the first step of prevention.
