Enhanced Kitchen Outbreak Cleaning

In the event of an outbreak, a prompt notification to kitchen personnel is imperative. Swift action and meticulous adherence to cleaning protocols, as stipulated in the safety data sheet, are paramount.

Amplifying Cleaning Frequency:

- Surfaces frequently touched undergo cleaning twice daily and after each use.
- Surfaces with minimal contact require daily cleaning.
- Promptly address visibly dusty or soiled surfaces and fixtures.
- Spills necessitate immediate cleaning.
- Shared workspaces should be cleaned and disinfected at the conclusion of each employee's usage.

Strategized Kitchen Cleaning with Color Coding:

- The implementation of color-coded cleaning equipment, notably green for kitchen areas, proves highly effective in delineating equipment zones within the facility.
- Exclusive use of green cloths is confined to the kitchen area.

Thorough Cleaning and Disinfection of Utensils:

- Utensils, crockery, cutlery, and relevant equipment should undergo rigorous cleaning and disinfection:
- Hot water and detergent cleansing followed by soaking in hot water at a minimum of 77°C for 30 seconds.
- Alternatively, deploying a commercial dishwasher with rinse cycle water temperature surpassing 80°C.
- Hot water and detergent cleansing, succeeded by a soak in 100ppm of available chlorine for a minimum of 3 minutes at a water temperature exceeding 50°C.
- For items unsuitable for water soaking, meticulous washing with hot water and detergent, succeeded by a 10-minute application of 200ppm available chlorine. Subsequently, rinse and dry.

Safeguarding Dishwasher Efficiency:

- Ongoing maintenance to ensure efficient dishwasher operation, accompanied by the provision of records as needed.

By meticulously adhering to these protocols, the kitchen remains a fortified bastion in outbreak management, upholding hygiene standards and minimizing potential transmission risks.
