5 Common Food Safety Mistakes

5 Common Food Safety Mistakes Graphic

As the largest commercial pest control provider in North America, Orkin services tens of thousands of restaurants, and while our primary job is restaurant pest control, we know that everything we do is really about food safety.

If you’re in the restaurant business, you know how much time it takes to make sure a rapidly rotating kitchen staff adheres consistently to certain food safety basics. And if you’re like the restaurant managers we interviewed to create this resource, you probably have concerns about some of these food safety infractions happening more than others. We feel your pain, and we’re here to help.

Use this short video to train your back-of-house staff on five of the most common restaurant food safety mistakes, and what they should do instead. Then print out the accompanying food safety checklist and hang it in your kitchen as a daily reminder.
