- Clean & Disinfect Areas Regularly – Regular high-level cleaning means cleaning machinery between uses. This should be a consistent process, not only before and after handling raw meat.
- Don’t Let Food Waste Pile Up – Don’t wait to clean up spills or dropped food. Clean as you work. This will keep the hygiene level of your workplace high and prevent the growth of bacteria.
- Dispose of Waste Straight Away – Clean the workplace regularly and keep it well maintained. Establish a high-level cleaning routine and stick to it. Have a designated area to dispose of waste and set times to do so. This is how you will keep your workplace clean and safe.
- Ensure you are keeping potential cross-contamination to a minimum – in some facilities, particular ingredients and process will be required to happen in different times or areas of the facility to prevent cross-contamination
- Don’t feed the pests! With an abundance of food to hand, food and drink facilities can be a rapid breeding ground for pests who are attracted by the prospect of something to eat. Removing these hazards – such as nesting moths is crucial to ensure that the risk of cross-contamination is minimised.
