Set (and enforce) personal hygiene standards

Basic hygiene standards that every kitchen staff member should adhere to include:

  • A clean uniform that should be only used in the kitchen
  • Disposable gloves that are being changed regularly and handwashing at regular intervals
  • Hair tied back if required
  • Short, clean fingernails
  • A clean bill of health

Good practices

  • Suppliers are working hard to avoid any disruption to food deliveries, but be sure to monitor the condition of goods when they come in.
  • Check your sanitiser contact time when cleaning down, ensuring that your team knows as well.
  • Check that all of your food safety policies and records are up to date.
