RESTAURANT INSPECTION? 5 TIPS TO PREPARE YOURSELF
An upcoming inspection for your diner, bar or other eatery is certainly stressful. These scores are very important to the longevity of your business. A bad review can do serious damage to your credibility. However, with some preparation, your restaurant is sure to do stellar and boast about your fantastic health inspection scores!
#1 Train your managers often to ensure they are up-to-date on the latest food safety techniques.
#2 Review your local health code for any special, local requirements. The board often changes or updates certain areas that may need special attention from you.
#3 Do an official walk through and use the same form that your health department uses. Put yourself in the health inspector’s place and you’ll see problems as they would.
#4 Ensure all staff understand. If your staff includes employees for whom English is a second language, be sure to have the guidelines translated so everyone understands how important food safety is to the success of your restaurant.
#5 Keep it clean at all times. You never know when a surprise inspection will take place!
