Safety in the home and workplace
1. FOOD SAFETY
Food safety is critical all of the time. The last thing you want to be doing is having a lot of people over for a great big dinner and having half of them go home with upset stomachs. A few simple rules to follow will help you avoid this.
Always make sure your meat is well defrosted before cooking. Cook meat a the right temperature for the correct amount of time.
Always use sepeate chopping boards for cooked and uncooked food.
Store everything in the fridge that have been cooked in advance.
And make sure you keep good standards of hygiene by washing your hands and working area thoroughly
2. ROAD SAFETY
We are often out on the road to visit friends and family near and far. Here are some tips that can help you to have worry and accident free driving while you are out on the road.
Check your car over before you drive. This means brakes and tyres are in good condition.
When you are going from A to B there is no need to rush. Whats the difference if you arrive ten minutes later. It is far better to be late and ARRIVE ALIVE.
Always observe speed limits and road safety messages and if you are going to a few different place make sure you dont have one too many drinks. To be involved in an accident is one thing you would never forget for the rest of your life.
Wear your seat belt
3. WORK SAFETY
We all know that in the holiday season things tend to get a little hectic where ever you go. It is no different at the shopping malls. If you happen to be a retail worker in this period, it can be quite stressful working in this mad environment. Just try and remember that by you rushing and taking shortcuts at work you could be setting yourself up for an injury that could ruin your holiday season. If you are a shopper try and have a little bit of patience, because getting upset over a slight delay will not do you or anyone helping you any good. Just because it is the holiday season does not mean you should ignore your companies health and safety regulations.
