Safety On the Job

Jeffrey M. Schwartz

Scientific Fire Prevention

As professional kitchen exhaust cleaners, we sell safety as part of our service to our clients. But what about the safety of our crews on the job? None of us wants any of our staff to be injured. You should hold a weekly safety meeting to review basic safety procedures. Here is a “Safe Job Checklist” to help ensure that our most valuable company asset, our staff, are as safe as possible. It only takes a few minutes for a lifetime of safety.
