Rules to consider when preparing food

  • Wear a clean apron.
  • Wear closed-in shoes to protect your feet, in case of hot spills or breakages.
  • Wash your hands before and after handling food.
  • Keep food preparation surfaces clean.
  • Tie back long hair.
  • Store food appropriately.
  • Wash vegetables and fruit under cold water before use.
  • Do not run around the room where food is being prepared.
  • Wipe up food spills immediately.
  • Handle knives and other sharp equipment with care.
  • When using a knife, always cut away from yourself or downwards on a chopping board to avoid cutting yourself.
  • Turn handles of saucepans away from the front of the stove when cooking.
  • Use oven mitts when taking hot dishes from the oven or microwave.
  • Wash kitchen and eating utensils after use in hot soapy water. Wash the cleanest dishes first, and then the messiest dishes last, so you don’t have to change the dishwater as often.
