TRAINING
FOOD SAFETY
On training
At Kronen, training is a critical aspect of their customer
service package.
" We offer on-site training for operation, maintenance
and sanitation, which can be scheduled to accommodate
specific needs such as shift change, second and third shifts,
sanitation hours, and weekends. "
Going the extra mile
One of the best ways to reduce food safety issues is
to choose hygienically designed equipment. While some
processors may be concerned about the cost of equipment,
Quandt said it pays for itself in the long run.

On choosing equipment
Operators want to be able to access machines quickly
and easily, which is why ease-of-use should be top of mind
when choosing equipment for high turnover environments.
" Machines that are difficult to use have a negative effect on
the people that operate and clean them. They eat up valuable
time, which tends to result in shortcuts or lack of interest to do
the best job. Operators also like easy access to their machines,
so Kronen designs include various doors or removable panels
for quick and easy access inside the machines. Better access
results in better operation, maintenance and sanitation. "
high degree of hygienic design and constant improvement.
These design features come with extra costs in the
manufacturing process, so our selling prices tend to be
higher than machines with lower standards. Buyers need
to consider the hygienic design features of equipment
when comparing prices. Manufacturers all have the same
relative costs of materials and labor, so the only way to
offer lower prices is with lower design standards, such
as low quality welding (that creates pits/gaps/crevices),
stitch welding instead of continuous welds, square corners
instead of rounded and angled corners, fixed assemblies
instead of quick-attach and detach assemblies, highquality
seal materials, and access doors for easy sanitation
and inspection. "
Closing comment
One of the best approaches to minimizing food and
workplace safety incidents in high turnover environments
is to have an ambassador working the floor at all times.
