September is Food Safety Month

Last year, the supply chain among various food producers was threatened by COVID-19. Workers at large production facilities and co-packers fell sick to the virus and left gaps in the production line. This threat to their employee’s health, and the efficiency of their production, was in addition to the normal threat of spreading food-borne illnesses that food production companies encounter day-to-day. It has never been more evident that good personal hygiene is essential for food safety AND the overall health of a facility. At Emergent Safety, we’re here to help keep your facility running and healthy, whether that be with janitorial supplies, food-grade gloves & aprons, or signage.

First, a clean facility is absolutely necessary to prevent illness. Correctly using cleaners and sanitizers around food and food prep areas will also help you avoid food-borne illnesses and keep your workers healthy. Establishing a cleaning routine, not only for your entire facility but also for each worker’s area, is absolutely essential. Emergent Safety offers a wide variety of janitorial products such as spray bottles, concentrates, wipes, hand sanitizer, and so much more.

Food-grade gloves, aprons, masks, hairnets, and more are also essential to operating a safe and healthy facility. Not only should food workers properly wash their hands before working with food or equipment and utensils, but gloves should also be used and replaced often. Most establishments should instruct staff to replace gloves every four hours at minimum, or after a worker has touched anything that might contaminate themselves. The use of disposable aprons, masks, and hairnets also help limit the spread of illnesses. Here are a few of Emergent’s top sellers for the food industry:
