Ergonomics & Staff Mobility _ An ergonomically designed kitchen is one where staff can stand in just one spot and carry out most of their chores with least walking, turning, reaching and bending. Additionally, ergonomics decrease fatigue levels, discomfort and decrease possibilities of injury in the kitchen. A well_arranged kitchen allows your staff to move easily around without bumping into each other. This promotes an efficient and well ordered kitchen especially during the rush periods.
The Benefits _ The kitchen design incorporates a variety of significant factors with convenience being the most important one. The kitchen design must account for your daily routine and typical movements within the kitchen; for example, the appliances must be placed in a particular way so that it is convenient for your coordination within the room. The position of different equipment must be considered along with all other features as easy movement minimizes the risk of accidents occurring in the kitchen. Furthermore, your storage space should also minimize risk by having all pots, pans and cutlery in easily accessible, yet out of the way, places. It is recommended that you install hooks and drawers to make the kitchen more orderly.
