Beginning with the cooking staff, restaurants have a duty to ensure their food is high quality and that it is prepared well. All food should be stored properly, at the correct temperature and away from contaminants. Any spoiled or expired food needs to be properly disposed of. If a restaurant attempts to serve old food, they could be putting their customers at risk of food poisoning.
Kitchen staff should also wear appropriate headgear and gloves so that they do not contaminate food. The last thing patrons expect is to get sick from food when they go out to eat, but if it happens, it can cause major health problems.
All chemicals used inside a restaurant should be stored appropriately so that they do not contaminate food. If any cleaning supplies are left out, children could ingest them and become seriously ill.
Inside a restaurant, there will inevitably be spills to contend with. These should be cleaned up immediately by restaurant staff. Unfortunately, food and drink spills are not always cleaned right away and cause patrons to slip and fall. Also, any mats or carpeting that is used in customer areas should be flat to the ground and not bunched up. These can become slip and fall hazards as well.
All tables and chairs should be routinely checked for defects. These items are used every day and could wear down after a while. If they break and harm a customer, the restaurant owners could be liable for injuries.
Restaurant owners have a duty to ensure the outside of their establishments are safe as well. The parking lots should not have uneven surfaces that could cause people to fall. All railings should be maintained and sturdy and curbs should be stable.
