Floor coverings for the food industry and gastronomy

Balance between food safety and worker safety The preparation and handling of food is the most critical phase in terms of food safety in mass caterers, food establishments, food manufacturers, food importers, distributors, retailers, etc. HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is a strict a program for monitoring the condition and temperature of food at various "tipping points" on its way to the consumer to ensure food safety in line with today's demanding regulations.

The aim is to avoid cross-contamination of food by workers and the environment and, at the same time, to ensure workers 'safety when using knives and operating machinery, for workers' well-being during hard work in difficult conditions, and to increase productivity when working standing up throughout the shift.

Floor matting is an excellent way to avoid the risk of injury, improve performance in the short term, and reduce sickness absence and occupational disease in the long term.

Supermaty.pl offers ideal solutions for standing workers, because unlike other manufacturers, we understand the differences in how employees receive mats

and we pay attention to various working conditions.

Mats, industrial floor coverings for the food and catering industry, are made of special materials that ensure good adhesion to the ground and immediate drainage of fluids, which is an effective, inexpensive and durable solution to reduce the risk of falls in the workplace. Increased safety Slips and falls account for 20 to 30% of accidents that result in long-term absenteeism.

According to the National Floor Safety Institute and the US Department of Labor, over three million such accidents occur in the catering industry each year. It costs the catering sector more than $ 2 billion each year, and the cost is growing at a rate of 10% annually.

And the most common cause of slips and falls is dirt and grease on the floor.

Particularly in the food industry, the biggest problem is that floors need to be smooth to facilitate cleaning and disinfection.

But "the presence of water, vegetable and animal oils, blood, flour and various biological waste make floors very dangerous, and the effects of falls are even more severe as workers often handle various objects," emphasizes Henri Saulnier, Head of IET (Equipment Design work) at INRS (French institute for health and safety at work).

According to reports, 50% of accidents can be attributed to the type of floor used. Merely washing the floors is not enough to keep them from being slippery. Wildbrett and Sauer (1992) noticed that in contact with e.g. dairy products,

even non-slip floor coverings are clogged with microscopic stains of protein and grease after washing. In order to maintain the effectiveness of anti-slip floor coverings, they would have to be replaced constantly. What's worse, a lot of damage is caused by dropped items, such as porcelain, glass or knives.

Anti-Fatigue Action The OSHA (Organization for Safety & Health Administration) stated that "standing for long periods or repetitive activities such as reaching, lifting and chopping while preparing food is one of the hazards for working in the kitchen. . Constantly standing while preparing food may lead to the formation of a static posture, causes muscle fatigue and blood stagnation in the lower limbs. An uncomfortable neck position can cause strain and muscle stiffness if the cook constantly bends his head to, for example, chop or stir food.

Balancing For this reason, OSHA recommends employers use anti-fatigue mats and avoid static postures. "Anti-fatigue mats stimulate contraction and stretching of muscles in a standing person, improving blood circulation and reducing fatigue."

As the second cause of fatigue, prof. Dr. Redha Taiar (2011) from the University of Reims in France reported the imbalance. In addition to using the same muscles too often when there is an imbalance in the system, the muscles have to work harder to find it and their short response time is kept at the expense of energy, which causes them to become excessively tired.
