How can I stay prepared for health inspectors?

Keeping Kitchens Clean

If you own an eating establishment you know that health inspectors can show up unexpectedly for a health and safety review of your restaurant. Be prepared by following a few simple guidelines:

  • Keep countertops free of clutter.
  • Use the "clean as you go" policy when cooking. Put away ingredients after use and wipe down countertops with antibacterial wipes and/or cleaning spray.
  • Sinks should have a separate compartment or holder for sponges and washrags. (Rubbermaid makes great sponge holders that suction to the side of the sink.)
  • Keep floors swept, especially after food prep.
