Kitchen Hygiene Kitchen Hygiene is crucial when producing safe food and preventing the spread of illness among staff and customers. Below are some reminders for when working in the kitchen. • Kitchen staff must arrive in plain clothes and change into a clean uniform on site. This will avoid contaminating uniforms before starting work • Hands must be washed when entering the kitchen, when coming into contact with food and when changing gloves. • Keep your work area tidy and uncluttered and ensure you clean as you go. • Raw meat, poultry, fish, eggs and many other raw foods are the most common sources of germs, but they can easily cross-contaminate other foods. After handling these foods, always wash your hands, utensils and surfaces thoroughly before you touch anything else. • Rubbish and Waste must be regularly removed from the kitchen. • Common areas such as taps, doorknobs and tables (including dining rooms) must be disinfected frequently. If you have any queries about kitchen hygiene or workplace health and safety please contact the Alseasons office team- we are always happy to take feedback or provide advice.
