The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth
As an expert witness, Howard Cannon is always under oath. He spends his life bound to telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Recently, some investigators in Waco, Texas faced a $350 million lawsuit after lying under oath while in court for a restaurant case.

We could cover so many subtopics under recordkeeping, but we will keep is short and simple in this post. Recordkeeping can help prevent a wealth of problems. Organized and well-kept records also allow the business to take note of safety trends and act accordingly. We could go on about recordkeeping, but we will let you learn more about the multitude of benefits from Mr. Cannon’s book.
Don’t Ignore Close Calls:
If someone has an incident where they are almost injured or sick, do not wait for someone to become injured or sick before you act on the hazard. Take those close calls as an opportunity for preventative action. This not only protects everyone on the establishment’s property, but it also protects your business.
Train your employees. This should be common sense, but sadly it’s an invaluable step that is often skipped for the sake of time and at the cost of safety. Employees should be adequately trained on all policies and procedures and every time those policies and procedures are changed or updated.
Know the requirements for fire extinguishers and exits in your building and then adhere to them. Make sure that your employees are trained on how to use the fire extinguishers and the proper procedure for exiting in case of a fire.
Communication between management and employees is essential to a safely functioning restaurant. Use tools like communication logs to ensure that effective communication is always taking place in your restaurant.
Violence in the workplace can occur in many forms, but the key to prevention is education. Educate your employees on the different types of workplace violence and how to report workplace violence. Establishing a no tolerance policy for workplace violence is imperative to fostering a safe work environment.
Utilize safety tools in your restaurant such as aprons, pot holders, gloves, goggles, etc., and make sure that your employees understand their responsibility to use the tools every time. Ensure that your employees are trained on how to properly use each tool.
Conduct routine inspections around your restaurant to look for potential safety hazards. Make note of any potential safety hazards and then do whatever needs to be done to prevent any injuries or illness.
Always have a staff member on duty that is trained in basic first aid. Ensure that all staff members are aware of the location of the first aid kit and routinely check your first aid kit to make sure that it is adequately stocked.
Conduct regular safety meetings among management and employees.

Introducing the Restaurant Expert Witness Office Dogs
So, in doing this whole social media thing, we noticed that Howard always manages to outdo the team on engagement just by sharing one picture of his dogs. We can share 300 business posts and get no likes or comments. Howard shares one picture of his dogs and all of a sudden he’s the most famous person on Facebook. So we decided to shamelessly steal his concept and officially hired his dogs to be our official “Office Dogs”. So, without further ado…
