COLOUR CODING STANDARD PRACTICE IN CATERING BUSINESSES:
- YELLOW has been assigned to kitchens and food and drink preparation areas. Food preparation areas pose a high risk of cross-contamination particularly from uncooked meat and fish. Therefore it’s crucial to control the use of cleaning products in these areas.is assigned to clinical or hygiene sensitive areas, however yellow is often used outside of the care industry as a colour assigned to the cleaning of all other washroom surfaces, including sinks, mirrors, cubicles, tiled walls, glass and also metal. Having two different colour codes for wash rooms ensures that the same cleaning products are not used on toilet seats or urinals as on sinks and taps. This helps to further contain the spread of infection.
- BLUE has been coded for low-risk areas, such as front of house bar & restaurant areas, offices and hallways, as well as for general dusting or polishing. As there is usually a lower degree of bacterial contamination in these areas compared to other areas, blue coded cleaning products can be used across a wider range of surfaces.
- GREEN has been assigned to Public Areas, excluding toilet washrooms.
- RED is assigned to areas such as urinals, toilet washrooms and washroom floors. As these areas are universally regarded to have a high-risk of bacterial contamination. By using only red-coded cleaning products such as cloths, mops, buckets and also gloves to clean them, the risk of spreading bacteria outside of these areas are reduced.
