When dealing with any food, seafood in particular, there are a few things that restaurant employees need to keep in mind. First, all food needs to be stored properly and at the correct temperatures. When it is cooked, each meat needs to be cooked completely according to industry standards. If a cook fails to maintain quality standards, they could make customers ill.
All expired or spoiled food needs to be discarded immediately. If bad food is served to customers, they could become very ill with food poisoning.
Many people have allergies to certain foods, especially seafood. There should be appropriate warnings posted for customers so they know what kind of food is served. If they have allergies, they need to know there is a possibility they could come into contact with certain foods.
Cooks and kitchen staff should ensure that no loose items accidently fall into customers’ food. If this happens, it could pose a hazard if it is bitten down on or swallowed. Broken teeth or choking on non-food items could mean major medical bills for patrons.
Lastly, customers need to be warned if their plates or cups are hot to the touch. A simple warning can keep people from getting burned.
Parking lots can be a problem for restaurant owners if they do not properly maintain them. This means that the pavement should be free from cracks and not uneven. The curbs should be stable. A fall in a parking lot can seriously hurt patrons.
Inside the restaurant, staff needs to pay particular attention to spills. Any food or drink spill that is not cleaned immediately becomes a slip and fall risk for patrons.
The inside of restaurants should be well-lit and the walkways need to be clear of obstructions so that customers can move around without tripping over anything.
