Ok I found something helpful.....
Does wearing a skirt in a restaurant kitchen setting pose a safety hazard?
OSHA does not have a specific standard or policy addressing the wearing of skirts - any type of skirt - in a restaurant kitchen setting. In general, section 5(a)(l) of the 1970 Occupational Safety and Health Act, 29 U.S.C. ß654(a)(1) (general duty clause), requires employers to furnish employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that cause or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to their employees.
Unfortunately, OSHA cannot provide a more specific answer to your inquiry due to the limited amount of information provided. The degree of exposure to restaurant kitchen hazards depends on, among other factors, the work the employee is performing and the characteristics of the employee's clothing. Employees may be exposed to sharp objects and hot surfaces and substances, and risk being cut and burned. The exposure of a greater amount of skin, whether from shorts, short skirts, or short sleeves, can increase the likelihood and severity of burns from splashing hot substances. The more loose-fitting the clothing is, meanwhile, the greater the potential for the clothing to catch fire or become caught in a machine.
Regardless of the potential hazard, exposure also depends upon job responsibilities. For example, a waitress picking up food orders in the kitchen is generally less exposed to the hazards there than the cooks are.
Although OSHA does not have a specific standard or policy regarding kitchen apparel, we do recommend that kitchen staff, particularly those working in close proximity to any of the various hazards described above, wear protective clothing such as long-sleeved cotton shirts and pants to protect from cuts and bums. For more information on potential hazards in restaurants that relate to employee dress, please see OSHA's website at http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/youth/restaurant/index.html
. This section of OSHA's website is directed towards protecting young workers but the information and advice is applicable to all restaurant workers. Information particularly relevant to your question is under the Cooking and Food Prep tabs.

The worst dish was definitely the pasta with the olives and pineapple. We didnít get sick from anything, it was all cooked
properly just did not taste good.
I have to ask..you always have on a skirt when in the kitchen, is there a reason or is it good luck or whatnot?
You know, itís just like wearing shorts. They are fun and comfortable but also girly and I love them.
Do you cook
a lot when you are at home and with your swamped schedule what do you do for fun in your spare time?
......so after reading the safety hazard thing how about wearing pants + non-wavy straight(aka non-loosing fitting) hardy material skirt? It also looks like from that site that Andy M. gave me that there is chef's capri's also...so how about wearing capris + non-wavy straight(aka non-loosing fitting) hardy material skirt?
