Safety

Our kitchen safety hire is one of those things we hope you never need to use, but we know it needs to be there in case things do go wrong.

Unlike our other equipment, we hope that most of our kitchen safety hire never gets used. Having fire safety and first aid equipment on hand is important when it’s needed though.

What kinds of kitchen safety hire are on offer?

We have three kinds of kitchen safety equipment hire available.

For fire safety, we have fire extinguishers and fire blankets. Our fire extinguishers are multi-purpose and are suitable for use on A, B, C and electrical type fires, while fire blankets are perfect for protecting the person from oil and fat fires.

Injuries occur sometimes, and our first aid kit is great for helping to sort out when accidents happen in the kitchen. It comes with equipment to treat minor injuries quickly and effectively.

When using electrics, it’s good to know you’re protected. Our extension leads are designed to be used in kitchen situations, while our RCD circuit breakers will help prevent any electrical trouble should there be a power surge.

How does delivery of kitchen safety equipment work?

All of our items are checked prior to delivery to ensure that they are in full working order. If you do use items from the first aid kit please advise us so we can ensure it’s replenished on return; if you have to use the extinguisher there is a £35 fee to refill it.
