Hungry Jack’s has to spend more than $5 million replacing all of its fryers following an accident in an Adelaide restaurant which left a young worker with third-degree burns.
Hungry Jack’s pleaded guilty to breaching occupational health and safety laws.
Commenting on this incident Guardian’s managing director stressed how important it is to have both adequate insurance cover and sound workplace policies.
As a result of the incident, Hungry Jack’s conducted a review of its policies and procedures and decided to replace all deep fryers in SA that had broken filtering systems.
They also committed to spend an estimated $5.3 million replacing all of its fryers across the country according to court documents.
