Supermarket fined after worker slipped in hot oil
A Supermarket was fined and ordered to pay costs totalling £25,500 after a worker was burned by hot oil.
The catering assistant, who worked in the customer restaurant, received burns to her back when she slipped and fell on hot oil. The assistant had been emptying oil, thought to be in excess of 100c, from a deep fat fryer into a handle less plastic bucket, when the bucket melted allowing the oil to spill onto her feet and the floor.
The fryer had been replaced three months before the accident with one that didn’t have an integral filter and collection tray, the company was unaware of this and failed to provide additional equipment for safely removing the oil.
