Food Safety for Maintenance Staff

Food safety is often only focused on the quality and production departments. A major cause of food safety incidences are however related to equipment/ building design and mistakes by maintenance personnel and contractors. Yet most food facilities fail to address this issue and do not provide the maintenance department with effective food safety training.
