Automation brings changes to restaurant safety

Anti-fatigue mats can keep people safe in the restaurant industry.

Working in the restaurant industry can make for an extremely fast-paced environment. Having anti-fatigue mats on the floor of the kitchen and serving area is a good idea, as it reduces the chances of employees falling due to a spill or particularly worn, slippery floor. However, there are other adjustments you can make around the restaurant as well to keep up with the busy nature.

According to Restaurant Business, automation is making its way into the restaurant industry. While it can be used for tracking the quality of food and keeping a consistent temperature, regulating the food as it should be, some restaurant managers are using the technology to keep their employees safe.

The news source reports that the newest technology allows new hires state-of-the-art virtual training, that puts them in the shoes of their task before they’re out on the floor. The news provider also reports that this technology can be used to refresh training for employees who have been on the job for a while.

Green Biz reports that some restaurants are even using new technology to supplement human workers, by doing tedious tasks such as flipping burgers or sorting the food, which helps reduce traffic flow in the kitchen.
