Common Food Delivery Safety Risks

Food delivery drivers (SkipTheDishes, DoorDash, Uber Eats, Grubhub, and more) experience a range of safety risks during their shifts, especially when delivering food orders to their destination.

Here are some of the safety risks associated with food delivery:
  • Catching a virus such as COVID-19 when touching a high-touch surface or assisting an infected person who coughs, sneezes, or otherwise spreads their disease

  • Cross-contamination of food during transport

  • The growth of harmful bacteria within the food during transport when hot foods are not kept hot or cold foods are not kept cold

  • Car accidents during food transport
