Technically summer doesn’t start until June 21st, but with the heat that we are having in Texas, it sure does feel like summer has arrived. Here are some fun (and somewhat useless) facts about the month of June: the flag of the United States was adopted in 1777, it is National Candy Month, Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16th this year (that’s this weekend!), and lastly, June has the longest daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest daylight hours of the year in the Southern Hemisphere. There you have it! You are now prepared for your next June trivia night. candy month

Will You Be Ready For An Inspection?

Tips to help prepare for the dreaded health inspector

 

A couple of months ago we talked about doing a spring cleaning overhaul on your restaurant. Now, let’s look at the best way to be prepared for a health inspection. You may, or may not, know when they are coming, so stay ahead of the game. Managers can and should conduct weekly inspections to be proactive. Here are some things to look at that were highlighted on the National Restaurant Association Blog Article – “Nine tips to prepare for a health inspection”:

1. Use the Same Form – Locate the form that your health department uses and go through as if you are the health inspector

2. Walk into your establishment – Get an outsider’s perspective entering the building

3. Review problems post-inspection – Once you have gone through and made your assessments, make sure the kitchen staff and other staff members understand the importance of food safety

4. Ensure staff are on the same page – This is especially important if you have any employees that speak English as a second language, be sure to get a translator to clarify all of the findings

5. Know your priorities – For kitchen employees it should include: food time and temperatures, personal hygiene, and cross contamination. Temperature guidelines are to check the products when they arrive, when they are stored and when they are served

6. Reinforce hand washing – Post signage at all sinks and restrooms and discuss with employees

7. Train your managers – Make sure they are up to date with all of the latest food-safety techniques

8. Review health codes – Check for any special local requirements

9. Get involved politically – Provide a restaurateur’s perspective on local committees

These simple steps should help you and your staff be prepared for a health inspector to arrive at any moment, and for your restaurant to pass with flying colors.
