About Us - The Restaurant Vault

About Us

We are the Restaurant OSHA Safety and Security Institute and we are the creators of The Restaurant Vault.

Inside the Vault you will find the books, workbooks, tests, quizzes, videos, and other tools that you need to help you make your restaurant, or group of restaurants, more safe and secure and your managers and employees better trained and more aware about the hazards that exist in their restaurant, and how best to reduce risks and resolve dangerous conditions.

The Vault gives you unlimited access – for all employees and managers working at one restaurant location – for one low price that is cheaper than the cost of your daily coffee.

Our Mission Statement

We love the restaurant industry and have been engaged in the industry for many, many years. We love safe restaurants and we love safe restaurant employers, employees and customers.

If our training helps one restaurant customer, employee or vendor avoid being injured, harmed, sickened, maimed, or killed in one restaurant, it was well worth the countless hours of writing and research that it took for us to create this material and the extreme effort that it took for us to get this information to you inside The Restaurant Vault by Restaurant OSHA Safety and Security.

As an organization, we serve restaurants, bars, and other food and beverage industry establishments, employers, employees and vendors in all parts of the nation, and her territories. Our corporate office is based out of Birmingham, AL but we do business in every state across the United States and several countries around the globe.

Everything that we do is in service of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
