Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
ensure safe working conditions; rules or guidelines must be followed based on workplace operation; inspections occur when
1. employee files complaint r/t safety
2. random check
3. serious injury or death
Material Safety Data Sheet
Identifies chemical and hazard warnings of chemicals used in fs facility. OSHA requires employers to have a program to communicate chemical hazards to employees
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
evaluates water and air quality
State and Local health departments
examine fs areas for cleanliness, etc.
fmly, National Sanitation Foundation; main organization that makes certian that sanitation standards are met when fs equipment is constructed and assembled; also, concerned with how easily equipment can be cleaned and sanitized.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
main agency that certifies equipment meeting established electrical, design, and structural standards for safety to ensure the equipment will operate in a safe manner; UL mark on equipment indicates equipment has met standards.
Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP)
1. assess hazards at each step of operations
2. establish critical control points (CCP)
3. set requirements at each CCP
4. set procedures and monitor CCP
5. determine corrective action for deviations
6. establish verification procedures
7. establish record-keeping and documentation procedures
TJC regulation criteria includes:
1. controlled traffic through fs areas
2. walk-in coolers must be able to be opened from the inside
3. food and non-food goods are labeled
4. water pipe units are properly insulated
