Fits Like A Glove…

In the restaurant industry there’s an enormous amount of time spent prepping the food: chopping, julienning, grinding, dicing- you name it- your kitchen staff is spending valuable time in the preparation phase making sure that the ingredients are ready and prepared accordingly. Undoubtedly, the single most important tool to make all of this happen, aside from cutlery, is your hands. Unfortunately, we have all been in a situation where a cooking-related accident ensues- burns, cuts, they are an inevitable part of working in the kitchen at one point in time. Accidents Happen!      One way that you and your staff can take precautionary measures to ensure cuts and kitchen-related injuries are kept at bay is by investing in gloves. And not just any gloves, we’re talking Cut-Resistant gloves. At MissionRS.com, we have a few different styles in various sizes to ensure an accurate fit and proper application.     

 

This cut resistant glove is made of a 7 gauge heavy-weight fiber with D3 seamless knitting technology to ensure a snug fit. Mashine Washable!
 

     Another crucial precaution for all of your restaurant staff to take is staying educated on cross contamination and food safety. Gloves play a role in this practice as well.   

 

Food Code 2005 forbids bare hand contact with ready-to-eat foods. This is where disposable gloves come in handy. Disposable gloves are extremely economical and are ideal for prep work of any kind. However, it is critical to remember proper glove usage to avoid cross contamination and foodborne illness. 

(Want to learn more? Read some great literature on proper glove usage here and here.) 

We have a selection of disposable polyethylene gloves online that are ideal for safe food handling and which are to be thrown away after using. Made with a component that complies with FDA regulations for food contact, these gloves feature a sheer-gauge 1 mil poly film which provides a sense of touch that is close to the bare hand. They can also be worn on either hand, they’re available in various sizes, and they are packed in a case of 100.   

   

     

Below is an interesting excerpt from Professionalequipment.com     

“According to the Ansell Edmont manufacturing website: The average insurance compensation for OSHA recordable hand and finger injuries is approximately $3856.00. The average medical payment is approximately $2600.00. There are approximately 439,000 disabling hand and finger injuries a year, which equates to an annual cumulative cost in the millions.”  Moral of the story is to take the necessary precautions and invest in gloves for your staff! Make sure to stay educated on proper glove usage as well.
