Gloves and aprons help keep you in good health when it comes to cuts, burns, and boiling oil, but sometimes a little extra precaution is necessary. Finding and wearing the right protective clothing in the kitchen can save you a world of hurt. Bad knees? Buy yourself a pair of knee pads to take the stress off your joints when kneeling or doing repair work. Do a lot of chopping, slicing, and dicing? Full-length cut resistant sleeves can help keep your hands and arms out of harm’s way. Protective clothing was made for a reason, and no one likes being another restaurant injury statistic.
