Keeping Food Service Areas Clean with Buckeye

Food service areas are some of the most important areas to concentrate on when cleaning. If improperly cleaned, kitchens and facility food bars can become hubs for bacteria and other germs. Keeping any food service areas in your facility clean can help prevent major health concerns.

Buckeye has the products and training materials a facility needs to effectively clean all food service surfaces, including countertops, walls, floors, tables, food bars, salad bars, grills, ovens, food and processing equipment. The Eco® Proportioning Program provides several products designed for cleaning inside food service areas and beyond. Products like Eco Sanitizer E62, Eco Heavy-Duty Cleaner E61, Eco One-Step Disinfectant/Deodorizer/Cleaner E22, and Eco Multi-Purpose Glass Cleaner E13 can clean and disinfect most food service areas.

Eco products are super concentrated and can reduce labor in your facility. The Eco Proportioning Program, as a whole, ensures proper dilution of products with compact Eco proportioning systems and makes cleaning your facility quick, easy, and economical. Customize the program to fit your facility by choosing which products and proportioning systems work best for you.

Buckeye is committed to providing more than just products for facilities looking to get the most out of their maintenance program. Buckeye provides several training programs designed to help facility staff members navigate cleaning food service areas and much more. For schools and universities, Buckeye has the Honors® Training Program. This program includes 24/7 access to the Honors website where training videos, tests, manuals, PowerPoint presentations, Safety Data Sheets (SDS), product literature, and wall charts are available. Buckeye also has several other training programs, including the Insight® Long-term Care Facility Program, Prescription® Hospital Environmental Services Maintenance Program, Clarity® Plus Supermarket and Retail Floor Maintenance Program, YMCA Cleaning/Training Program, and Correctional Facility Maintenance Cleaning/Training Program.

The Honors Training Program provides comprehensive information on properly maintaining food service areas. It breaks cleaning food service areas down into three key components: preparation, cleaning, and sanitizing. They also give in-depth information on Buckeye’s triple sink method to wash, rinse, and sanitize dishes, utensils, glassware, pots, pans, and other equipment that comes into contact with food.

Keeping your food service area clean and ready is an important task. Buckeye has the tools you’ll need to help keep the people who have access to food areas in your facility happy and healthy.

Buckeye’s Green Seal Products

Buckeye’s commitment to sustainability encompasses products, packaging, technology and entire maintenance programs. In its hard surface cleaners, Buckeye has proactively eliminated ingredients like butyl, solvents, and alcohol bases. For some products, Buckeye has gone even further. For facilities looking to minimize their impact on the environment, Buckeye offers many Green Seal certified products.

Green Seal develops Environmental Leadership Standards to help manufacturers, purchasers, and consumers make environmentally responsible decisions. Their mission: To transform the economy for a healthier, greener world.

Several products from the Symmetry® Hand Hygiene Program, Buckeye Hard Floor Care Program, and Eco® Proportioning Program are Green Seal certified. They include hand hygiene products, floor finishes, and various cleaners. Click here to see a complete list of Buckeye’s Green Seal certified products.

Each product conforms to the strict standards set by Green Seal, meeting the requirements based on effective performance and protective limits on VOCs and human and environmental toxicity. Most of the Eco product line meets additional standards for minimized/recycled packaging.

Buckeye’s commitment to sustainability does not compromise product performance. To achieve Green Seal certification, products must meet rigid performance requirements, the same performance standards met by non-green products. Buckeye’s Green Seal certified products not only outperform other green products, they also outperform non-green, conventional chemistries.

International Infection Prevention Week 2018

This week is International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW). The goal of IIPW is to raise awareness of the role infection prevention plays in improving patient safety.

The theme for this year’s IIPW is Protecting Patients Everywhere. With a theme this broad, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control (APIC) is promoting topics ranging from the use of antibiotics to proper hand hygiene. Protecting Patients Everywhere is about protecting patients and others through the continuum of care.

The Symmetry® Hand Hygiene Program can help you improve infection prevention in your facility. Following proper hand hygiene steps is one of the best ways to help improve patient health and safety. Symmetry has all of the hand hygiene tools you’ll need to improve hand hygiene practices in your facility.

Symmetry Dispenser

Symmetry products kill 99% of germs and come with comprehensive efficacy data, making them a reliable choice for facilities looking to stop the spread of disease. More than that, Symmetry products are gentle on your hands.

However, having the proper products available in your facility isn’t enough. This is why the Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program comes with tools to help motivate people to keep their hands clean. Its education and awareness tools include things like posters and wall charts, designed to explain the “How” and “Why” of proper hand hygiene. Symmetry also utilizes behavioral science to create unique placards and signs with messages designed to inspire and maximize hand hygiene practices.

For IIPW, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) is focusing on infection prevention throughout the continuum of care. Symmetry provides Point of Care tools for healthcare facility workers to use throughout care for a patient. Suction cups, brackets, and lanyards make it possible to access hand sanitizer while workers are in contact with patients and are at the highest risk of spreading infections.

The Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program is just one of many ways your facility can work to prevent the spread of infection. International Infection Prevention Week happens every third week of October, but infection prevention is a year-round job. Check out all of the tools APIC provides to keep you informed about infection prevention here.
