Safety requirements Always wash your hands when preparing poultry and when changing food groups Use colour- coded cutting boards. Frequently put these boards and any utensils through the dishwasher and allow to air dry Keep your cool room clean and at a temperature 0-4°C. Freezer temperatures should be maintained below -18°C Always store ear poultry on lower shelves to prevent drips contaminating other foods Keep uncooked meat covered and separated from cooked food Clean and sanitise work benches between tasks Safe and hygienic of food processor There are several aspects of designing hygiene into equipment that should be considered by the food processor before reengineering or introducing process equipment into the plant. In general, construction materials that may come in contact with food should not be able to make a food product toxic. Equipment must be designed to be self-drainable to make it possible to remove all residues of products and chemicals. To be cleaned without difficulty, surfaces must be smooth and free from crevices, sharp corners, protrusions, and shadow zones. When surfaces are not clean, microorganisms may be protected from destruction by heat or chemicals.
