The HACCP – Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point – procedure is a way of assessing the inherent risks attributable to a product or a process and to determine the necessary steps to control the identified risks.
So what does this mean?
Like Covid19 pandemic or an outbreak of sickness or any contamination linked to a business, using HACCP functions within the Electrolux Professional equipment to monitor processes will allow businesses the ability to track and identify, or eliminate the source. Professional washing programs are essential to disinfect all garments and cloths used in operations.
HACCP is a safety management system created for the food industry, but it is also relevant in laundry operations because contaminated linen or garments can have a negative impact on people in numerous situations, food-related or not.
Implementing HACCP procedures in the laundry is important in the food industry: clean workwear and uniforms are key to keeping a number of critical points under control, and if laundry operations cannot assure clean, uncontaminated garments and linen, these could, instead, be a hazard. Laundry operations play an even more important role in the hospitality industry and medical field since personal gear and workwear are themselves critical control points.
HACCP implementation in the laundry is a matter of process because the control of critical hazard points encompasses all the activities, how they are conducted, and the appliances used. The choice of the correct washing machine is just as important because management procedures can be amended but if an appliance does not meet standards then it must be replaced. Knowing how to choose the right one is therefore particularly important.
Electrolux Professional laundry systems comply with the strictest HACCP procedures: commercial washers and dryers in the line (as well as barrier washers, ironers and fittings) have been awarded the accreditation.
