Online PR News – 28-September-2009 – – Shieldyourself’s bespoke kitchen compliance diary system is helping businesses across the UK, from restaurants and bars to hotels, save time and money when it comes to demonstrating compliance with food safety legislation.

Developed by Shieldyourself’s food safety specialists, the Shieldyourself kitchen compliance diary system provides head chefs or food business managers with a single, easy to understand diary where they can record and track all health and safety and food safety information in one place. The diary system includes everything from all the necessary daily, weekly and monthly food safety checks to monitoring staff training, COSHH data, supplier deliveries and cleaning schedules.

Mark Flanagan, Shieldyourself Managing Director, explained: “With today’s increasing focus on compliance legislation, combined with the potential penalties that can be handed out to companies that flout the law, it is crucial that all food retailers implement and maintain a comprehensive Food Safety Management System.

“Shieldyourself can provide businesses with a detailed Food Safety Management System accompanied by a kitchen compliance diary to ensure all compliance legislation is met and that the necessary regular monitoring takes place.

“The diary integrates with current procedures in your kitchen and, at the same time, works to reduce the time spent on compliance paperwork, cut printing costs and ensure your business is ready and waiting for any inspection,” Mark stated.

The diary is tailored to meet the requirements of each, individual business, fitting in with their specific operational procedures and requirements, as well as providing managers with a simple compliance structure to follow with additional guidance notes built in.

The diaries run on a quarterly or six monthly basis with Shieldyourself’s team, which includes former Environmental Health Officers, regularly reviewing and updating the contents to ensure the diary is meeting the business’ exact and food safety needs.

“The aim of the diaries is to help retail businesses not only measure their compliance but increase it by enabling businesses to implement any necessary changes, without duplication in a structured and clear way,” added Mark.

“No retail business in today’s world can afford to be blasé about their health and safety and food safety systems; leaving it to chance is putting both you and your customers health at risk,” he concluded.
