CARE HOMES

The responsibilities of running a care home include maintaining a clean and safe kitchen area. This must be compliant with a range of legislation as well as the CQC requirements.

Risk assessments need to be completed and procedures put in place to control potential risks. Should you require assistance in this area we would be more than happy to help.

Below are some of the guidelines which need to be followed. With help from our skilled technical teams, this will ensure the Care Home Management meet their statutory duties.

FIRE SAFETY

A major cause of fire in kitchens is the build-up of fat, oil and grease deposits in the extraction system. No matter how clean the food preparation and cooking surfaces are kept, it is often difficult to see and clean these deposits in the canopies, hoods and ducting. Our experienced and qualified technicians ensure that these high risk areas are compliant with the legislation, and provide a cleaner healthier environment.

LEGISLATION

The main legislation relating to non-domestic kitchens is referred to as TR/19, primarily concerning two key areas:

  1. Kitchen Extraction Cleaning where it is necessary for a documented schedule of cleaning to be in place and…
  2. The ducting must be classified as low,medium or high usage ventilation. We can help you identify the correct classification.

We provide all the required documentation, including before and after photographs, together with post clean and maintenance reports. You can be sure that your staff and clients are safe, and that you are protected from any liability for negligence.

It is also important to have these documents to hand, evidencing compliance, in the event of an inspection and to meet your insurance company requirements.

Failure to meet the hygiene standards set out by The Food Safety Act 1990 and the Food Hygiene Regulations 2006 can also lead to heavy fines and damage to your reputation.
