with foam or chemicals to cover the fuel source. Most extinguishers used in a dining
facility are rated for more than one type of fire. Because a fire within a dining facility
may include one or more classes, a multipurpose, dry-chemical extinguisher would be the
most effective and should be readily available. The installation fire department should be
consulted when classes in fire prevention are planned or given at your facility.
22. Summary. The success of a dining facility operation depends largely on the security
program the manager has enforced in his operation. Do not initiate or support reprisal
action against workers who identify hazards, raise safety concerns, or engage in
authorized safety occupational health activities. They should, in fact, be commended for
being concerned with the safety of the dining facility.
