A Drainage Mat And Anti Fatigue Mats Are Missing!

Posted on: April 23rd, 2013 by

Non Slip Anti Fatigue Mats And Drainage Mats Complete This Kitchen!I just finished my first week back as a student and even with all the distractions of homework and studying I can’t get mats out of my head.

I’m learning to be a chef, with the hopes to run my own establishment someday, and safety in the kitchen is the number one thing we’re taught. There are so many little things I have to remember like placing knives a certain way, or wearing the proper non-slip shoes and making sure food is stored at proper temperature etc…  The first thing I noticed, while being lectured on the importance of non-slip shoes, is the kitchen had no drainage mat. NONE! Maybe since we’re not actually cooking just yet, they feel they’re not necessary. I’ve been all over the school learning where different supplies are, and I’ve seen everything you can possibly imagine for a kitchen- except a drainage mat.

It’s really odd that we spent almost a week learning about being safe and they don’t seem to have the very basic (and essential) products you would find in every professional  kitchen I’ve ever been in before, like safety mats!  For less than a tuition payment I can outfit the whole kitchen with enough drainage mats to protect every student’s station.

I understand why shoes are important, but when you’re standing in the same place for hours, I think good anti fatigue mats, safety mats and drainage mats would be a better option. I’m going to wait a few more weeks before I start telling my Chef his kitchen is ill-equipped!
