Tucker - Clients & Case Studies
Clients & Case Studies

Tucker Safety Products works closely with McDonald’s to develop and provide a complete Burn Injury Prevention Program designed to reduce the risk of injury while eliminating unnecessary additional line items and streamlining Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) used in each location. The Program also incorporates the use of custom equipment stations, which have improved compliance levels.

Tucker Safety Products was called in to design and develop a new product never conceived before. “This has never been much of a task for Tucker in the past 15 years when Wendy’s has asked Tucker for special requests” Fred Jordan, Risk & Safety Manager for Wendy’s. Within 48 hours of the request, there was a glove (that worked) in the testing lab. This glove is now standard product for their restaurant teams.

There are sometimes great learning experiences with specific accounts and TDCJ is one of them. We have learned to account for the fact that their culture is completely different than any other customer we have. The fact that they have inmates cooking and serving food meant we had to design their products around the inmate’s life style and make sure to secure the safety of each prisoner and the guards.

Tucker Safety Products has created comprehensive Burn & Laceration Injury Prevention Systems for Burger King Restaurant around the world. Each specific work station has been reviewed and custom designed products implemented in several key work areas.

In 2006 KFC asked Tucker to review their new Grilled Chicken cooking process and help them develop a protective glove for use when removing the chicken from their 500ºF+ ovens. They had researched every available glove from Lexington, KY to China and beyond. When all other options failed, they called in Tucker and within 48 hours, there was a glove (that worked) in the testing lab. This glove is now a standard product for their Grilled Chicken on the Bone Program.
