At On-Site Kitchen Rentals Ltd we take the issue of Health & Safety seriously. We hold Accreditation with numerous industry recognised bodies and pride ourselves on a highly skilled and experienced workforce.

Gas Safety

At On-Site Kitchen Rentals Ltd all our engineers working with gas products are Gas Safe registered and conform to industry approved codes of practice.

Gas installations are fitted to the Gas Application Safety Regulations 1995 Gas in Catering Establishments, BS6173: 2001: Specification for the installation of gas fired catering appliances for use in all types of catering establishments (2nd and 3rd Family Gases).

Electrical Safety

To ensure you and your staff are safe On-Site Kitchen Rentals Ltd comply with HSE Guidance 107 Electricity at Work Regulations. All of our installations meet BS7671:1992 for electrical safety.

All our catering equipment is PAT tested.

Ventilation

Our mobile kitchens are supplied with a gas interlock system built in. In the event of a loss of ventilation this stops gas from entering the facility. All ventilation is installed in accordance with industry guidance DW172 and BS6173.

All commercial gas catering equipment is required to have adequate ventilation by law.

Anti Slip Floors

Floors in a mobile kitchen must qualify as having 'low slip potential' and as such we comply with BS7976 and achieve a friction coefficient of 36 or higher.

It is the employer's duty to protect employees from physical harm and can be liable for slips or falls in the kitchen.

Foodsafe Walls

To ensure the walls are easy to wipe clean our mobile kitchens contain minimal crevices and joining strips.

Keeping food safe and hygienic can be helped with easy to clean walls preventing the build up of bacteria.

Lighting Levels

All our kitchens are supplied with 500 level LUX lighting.

LUX lighting provides a bright and safe environment and also reduces the risk of accidents.

We can also provide training sessions by dedicated product trainers regarding the safe operation and cleaning of all our catering products.

Employers are obliged to ensure that all staff are trained in the safe operation of equipment, under the Provision and use of Working Equipment Regulations (PUWER: 1998).

On Site Safety

To ensure safe working practices on site all staff at On-Site Kitchen Rentals Ltd hold appropriate health and safety accreditation, including SAFEcontractor and CSCS cards.

If requested we can provide relevant Risk Assessments and Method Statements for all of our installations.

Establishments have a duty of care to their staff to guarantee that any work on their site is done safely.
