Hello everyone, I’m the manager of the restaurant. First, I would like to say welcome to all of you. Today, as a part of the orientation program, my job is to make sure that all the new staffs, including chefs, kitchen hands and waiters are informed of the safety in workplace in the hospitality industry. I’ll also talk about the hazards you need to be careful of while working in a restaurant.

Let’s look at some of the things that you need to be careful of while working in a workplace. If you’ve just swept the floors, please do tell other workers because slippery floors will cause you to, well, slipped, but that’s not all! What if you try to grab a hold...
