Graphic Products launches food safety guide

07-Feb-2013

Graphic Products has launched a food safety guide to help industry communicate safety and hygiene messages clearly.

The Food Industry Safety Guide addresses organising the workplace with Five S Lean manufacturing, important signs for food processing workers, OSHA/ANSI standardised colours, designs and wording, ammonia pipe maker standards and the Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA) specifications for conveyor safety labels.

The firm said visual communications from signage and labeling help reduce risks associated with hazards, including high heat (surfaces and liquids), machinery spray and animal waste.

Stainless steel is the standard for food processing tanks and other equipment because it must endure demanding wash-down procedures in order to kill micro-organisms and bacteria, they added.
