Why You Need A Washdown Station For Your Production Line Sanitation

Production Line Sanitation

As 2020 crawls towards a close and we continue to battle COVID-19, the importance of thorough and effective sanitation is clearer than ever before. Facilities throughout the country have doubled down on cleanliness and washdown procedures, with a spotlight on human-staffed production line sanitation of consumer items.

Inadequate cleaning and sanitation in food production facilities can lead to a buildup of microorganisms that carry bacteria, molds, yeast, viruses, parasites, etc., which can spread contamination and food-borne illness to consumers. In a world already enduring a global pandemic, the elimination of preventable hazards is vital to ensuring the public’s continued health.

Sources of Production Line Contamination

Food production facilities are often exposed to hazardous contamination’s which is why sanitation procedures are critical and must be applied in production facilities. These facilities need to be aware of any hazards present that can potentially lead to contamination and food-borne illnesses. These typically include but not limited to:

  • Food Production Residue
  • Liquid & Airborne Contamination
  • Transient Soil from Workers
  • Detergent Residue
  • Microorganisms
