Dealing with Kitchen Oils


When reviewing safety arrangements in your kitchen you have identified that emptying and cleaning the fryer is a HIGH-RISK activity. What should be done to ensure staff safety?

If your equipment requires manual draining, the risk of scalding is particularly high. Review whether safer equipment can be purchased, such as a portable filtering unit. Regardless of the hardware you have, formalise your safe system of work and make sure it’s applied through training and supervision.
