Importance of Safety While Cleaning
The National Restaurant Association reports that slips and falls are the largest liability for restaurants. More than 3 million employees and 1 million customers get hurt each year from slips and falls, costing the restaurant industry about $2 billion annually. That’s a lot of money! The good news is that you can reduce the risk of slips and falls and your liability by following the proper floor care techniques. It’s a multi-step process that takes time, but will improve safety and your business’s overall appearance.
This is the first step in your floor cleaning process and must be completed fully before moving on to damp/wet mopping.blue broomlobby dustpan2
