To prevent chemical hazards from contaminating food, there are several measures that food workers can take. The first step is to ensure that all surfaces that come in contact with food, such as countertops, cutting boards, utensils, and dishes, are thoroughly cleaned and free from any chemicals.
The second measure is to minimize the use of chemicals in the kitchen, unless they are absolutely necessary. If the use of chemicals is necessary, food workers must take precautions to use them safely and store them properly, keeping them out of reach of children and pets.
Finally, food workers should educate themselves about the potential hazards of chemicals and how to avoid exposing themselves and others to them. This knowledge can help them make informed decisions about the use of chemicals in the kitchen and reduce the risk of contamination.
