Commercial Kitchens A safe clean environment

All commercial kitchens are hazardous working environments - they are extremely busy with the potential for wet and greasy floors due to the abundance of fluids in both cooking and cleaning - and they are hot! This combination of factors can affect both food hygiene as well as occupational health and safety. Efficient drainage is a fundamental requirement: operationally it helps prevent accidents and hygienically, it optimises food safety while helping to ensure the requirements of  European Law - EC 852 the hygiene of foodstuffs - are met.
