Chop on a chopping board not in your hand except when

This preview shows page 30 - 32 out of 74 pages.

Chop on a chopping board, not in your hand (except when doing decorative or detailed work such as turning potatoes). Hold your chopping board firmly in place by placing a damp cloth or non-slip mat under it. Cut away from yourself and your fingers. Never try to catch a falling knife. Never run your finger down the edge of a blade to check for sharpness. Carry your knife with the point towards the ground and the blade close to your body to avoid injuring others. Never soak your knives in a sink of water. This isn’t good for the blade and is very dangerous for any unsuspecting person who puts their hands into the water. Always clean and dry your knife if the handle becomes greasy or slippery. Food processor safety Although we’re looking specifically at food processors, take similar precautions when operating any electrical appliances such as mixers or blenders. Click on the checkboxes for some important safety tips. Set equipment and blades up correctly according to manufacturer’s instructions. Avoid contact with any moving parts. This includes your fingers, hands, knives and other utensils. Rebecca Anne Alarcon

Use the food pusher provided. Put the cover securely in place before you switch the appliance on. Do not operate the appliance near the edge of the bench. Vibration during operation could cause it to move and fall. Never use near water or on a sink. Never leave unattended. Switch off and unplug before removing bowl and contents. In a nutshell Remember to operate all electrical equipment according to manufacturer’s instructions and your workplace procedures to avoid injury. Slicer safety As with a food processor, follow manufacturer’s instructions at all times. Click on the dot points for some slicer safety tips. Always use the push guard for moving food towards the blade, not your hands. Ensure blade guards are in place if applicable to the model you’re using. Cut large pieces of meat into smaller more manageable sizes before loading onto the slicer. Always return the blade setting to zero when you’ve finished slicing. Never leave a slicer running. If you have to stop slicing for any reason, turn the machine off. Use cut resistant gloves if provided by the establishment. As with all electrical equipment, do not operate near water or liquid. Never reach across the blade for any reason. Never leave blades soaking in a sink of water. Never EVER clean or wipe down a slicer while it’s turned on. Note... One wrong move while working with a meat slicer can be disastrous! Its fast, sharp slicing blades can cut through skin, tendons, arteries and even bone.
