Increase Safety – Facilities that are not cleaned effectively have more potential safety risks—like slips and falls––due to food waste on floors. Also, major incidents due to buildup of soil in equipment can also occur.
Impact Financial Implications – Reducing waste from spoilage can significantly extend the life of equipment and machinery.
Minimise Legal Ramifications – Although it may not be common knowledge, there are often legal requirements for food facilities to clean surfaces and equipment to a specific standard.
Boost Stakeholder Confidence – Finally the appearance of plant and premises is often overlooked but the psychological benefits and confidence gained from clean, hygienic equipment and tidy surroundings have a significant impact on both worker satisfaction and customer confidence.
