Grease Burn

 An employee was lifting a fryer basket when the basket brushed against a fryer “cap”.  The cap fell into the grease, causing the grease to splash on the employee.

Factors to consider at your site or on your project include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. The cap was removed from both fryers.
  2. Remove loose items from the immediate area when working with substances that can splash and are hazardous.
  3. Review PPE requirements when performing tasks and possibly the need for additional PPE.

Consider this example as you complete today’s work activities. 

Think about the hazards associated with your particular work, and the steps that can be taken to increase safety on your job.
