How to stay safe when eating at the restaurant industry

The restaurant industry is experiencing a record number of restaurant fatalities and restaurant-related injuries, but according to a report from the Australian Restaurant and Catering Association, there are more than 10 million Australians employed in the restaurant sector.

The Association’s chief executive, Peter Tannen, said more than a third of restaurant workers were working in restaurants and they were working longer hours than ever before.

“The fact that more than half of Australian restaurants are still in operation today, and there are only a handful of remaining small business establishments, has a direct impact on restaurant safety,” he said.

“There’s a lot of people that come into these restaurants who’ve had no experience of working in the hospitality industry before, who are working in an environment where they’re not familiar with what it is like to be at work and what to expect when they leave their job.”

Mr Tann, who has been in the industry for more than 25 years, said the industry was working hard to address the issue.

“It’s a problem that needs to be addressed,” he told, “and this is something that the restaurant community is now really working towards.”

I think we’ve come a long way in the last two or three years.

We’re going to have to continue to take the initiative and be a lot more forward thinking.

“He said there was no doubt that more restaurants needed to be reopened to help prevent a repeat of the 2008 coronavirus pandemic.”

We need to have the capacity to reopen our restaurants, we need to be able to reopen some of our more vulnerable restaurants to allow people to return home and enjoy their evening,” he added.

The hemp industry: ‘It’s not going to get better’

A new crop of industrial hemp has been grown in Australia’s north, raising hopes for the future of the industrial use of the plant.

It is the first harvest since the federal government in 2016 began the compulsory cultivation of industrial Hemp.

But the Australian Hemp Industries Association says it is not going far enough.

It wants a moratorium on industrial hemp cultivation until the federal Government provides a detailed plan on what to do with the crop.

”We are hopeful that the federal legislation will be more ambitious than what is being proposed by the previous governments,” said Mr Gifford.

”But until that happens, we would like to see some changes in the legislation.”

The Australian Hemp Industry Association said its members, some of whom are small farmers, were worried about the effects of the current crop on their livelihoods.

Mr Gfford said hemp was one of the most economically lucrative crops in the country.

But while the plant had been used as a source of fibre, the industry was struggling with the impact of its industrialisation.

”It’s going to take a lot of work to get it to a level that we can grow it in Australia without compromising our food security, our water supplies and our quality of life,” he said.

”I’ve always thought that Australia would be a place where it’s very successful and you could see it grow in the future.”

”Hemp is very, very valuable in Australia, and if we do not grow it properly, we are going to lose a lot in terms of the value of it and its use as an industry.”

Farmers say they are worried about what the future might hold for their crop.

Mr Fennell said he had grown hemp for years but now needed a new crop to grow and support his family.

He said it was difficult to see a future for hemp if the federal policy was not to pursue it.

”If the federal governments go ahead and go ahead with industrial hemp, then it’s going in a very negative direction, he said, adding that if it was not for the government’s commitment, the federal sector could lose tens of millions of dollars.
