Restaurant OSHA Safety and Security

The Book of Restaurant Industry Standards & Best Practices

There is one special circumstance that is rather unique to the restaurant industry, and it is called shared spaces. The safety, health and security standards and methods established to protect restaurant industry employees are the same safety, health, and security standards and methods that must be implemented to protect restaurant customers, vendors, and others who enter the premises.

This is because there are no areas of the restaurant used exclusively by customers and no potential hazards or potentially dangerous conditions (if any should so happen to exist) within those common areas/shared spaces that do not put both the customers and the employees substantially and equally at risk.

OSHA guidelines play a significant role in almost every kind of restaurant industry incident as it pertains to safety, health and security–not just those involving employees, but all incidents that occur on the restaurant premises where an employee, customer, vendor, or other individual has been injured, harmed, sickened, maimed, or killed.
