The kitchen is arguably the most dangerous place in home and commercial venues. It is the place where most accidents can occur due to the hustle and bustle of trying to get food prepared and out in a timely manner. With all this activity, adults and children are very susceptible to becoming burn victims.
Filta has decided to make a donation toward the Burn Unit at the Orlando Regional Medical Center in hopes of helping to relieve some of the financial stress associated with severe burn victims and shedding light on how to prevent the injuries. “Preventing burn injuries is our first priority,” according to Tom Dunn, Filta’s COO. “We hope our donation can help ORMC provide the critical care that burn victims and their families need during the recovery process.”
Last year, over 3.8 billion dollars were spent on burn injuries and over a million work days were lost due to the impacts of these injuries. Filta, who offers the nation’s largest mobile cooking oil micro-filtration and fryer management service, reduces its clients’ exposure to burn related accidents and insurance claims by limiting the employees’ exposure to hot cooking oil. Filta’s recent partnership with Navion Insurance recognizes the reduced liability by providing commercial kitchens with a 5% insurance premium reduction when they use FiltaFry service.
