Risk Assessment

The first point of the commercial kitchen safety checklist should be the risk assessment. Look at the risk factors associated with your kitchen. In the worst situation how much it can cost your business. And then plan further or get help from experts. Look at the available kitchen space, and choose equipment with built-in safety features like ventless and food safe.

Design and Installation according to the Rules

Your kitchen should be designed and installed according to the approved compliance/standards. Also, we would recommend examining the exhaust area and choosing only hoodless and ventless equipment to avoid risk.

Choose Certified Cooking Equipment Only

Check all security certifications associated with the equipment so that you can be assured of its safety standards. Don’t go for low-priced and low-quality products because they may cost you more than you think.

Look at the Built-in Safety Features

You should also check built-in safety features that may prevent a mishappening with a clear signal or alarm. For e.g. before buying a deep fryer, it is recommended to check the safety features like ‘temperature control’ to avoid overheating. Do not buy cheap fryers that don’t indicate the oil temperature.

Regular Maintenance Check

There should be well-defined guidelines and schedules for daily and weekly maintenance checks. The equipment around the facility should be placed in a way that doesn’t harm other kitchen tools. For eg: leakage of gas from your refrigerator can cause a fire if a deep fryer is right next to it.

That’s why it is highly advisable to buy your commercial kitchen equipment that follows the accepted guidelines of safety and compliance. Kitchen equipment is the base for any kitchen. You should only buy certified products. Hopefully, you will follow these commercial kitchen safety checklists for your next buy.
