Keeping Your Commercial Kitchen Gas Safe
Whether you have a gas unit or catering equipment in your North Wales kitchen, making sure that your units and appliances are the highest quality and installed/maintained correctly is vital to the healthy running of your business. Not only does it ensure a comfortable and happy working environment, it also means that you are following the required laws, rules and regulations when it comes to commercial kitchens and equipment/gas safety.
One of the most important aspects of a kitchen is your equipment and unfortunately, domestic catering equipment just doesn’t cut it. Meant for everyday use, domestic catering equipment from your local shop will be more likely to break down and may not fully comply with essential gas compliant aspects such flues, ventilation and more. Investing in high-quality catering equipment is a great move for your business as it means you have the best tools to work with and your supplier can work with you to keep it both maintained and serviced.
It is advised that you have a maintenance plan in place, as you probably know, equipment breakages and problems happen when you least expect it. Annual and interim checks by a gas safe engineer can prevent any failures in the future and increase the longevity of your kitchen, keeping your business running smoothly.
A great thing to do is keep your commercial equipment clean and well-ventilated. If you’re running a kitchen or busy cafe, you may find that dirt, grease and more can build up over time to the increase in usage compared to your average home. Regularly cleaning your equipment can increase the safety of your kitchen as it decreases the chance of gas equipment sparking a fire.
The main reason to have a gas safe kitchen is not to solely comply with the law, but also to keep your staff and business safe.
