In food manufacturing hygiene is always a top priority, and this applies just as much to changing room areas as it does the factory floor. Storage equipment specialist Action Storage recently assisted a well known food manufacturer to equip its changing room areas with staff lockers which were specially designed to help ensure high standards of hygiene could be maintained at all times.
In any food manufacturing, healthcare or food retail environment it’s vital that employees have a clean area in which to change from outdoor clothes to minimise the risk of bacteria hitching a ride into production areas. Consequently, clothes lockers need to be easy to clean and built with materials that impede the growth of fungi, mould or algae in which bacteria can grow.
Action Storage’s steel staff lockers are specially designed for this purpose due to a special anti-bacterial paint called Germ Guard. This protective layer reduces the risk of cross-contamination and is proven to reduce the spread of Eschirea coli (E.coli), Methacillin resistant Staphyclococcus Aureus (MRSA) and other forms of bacteria.
The hygienic qualities of the steel lockers were further enhanced with the fitting of sloping tops, to prevent the accumulation of rubbish, and base stands so the floor could be easily accessed and scrubbed clean throughout the day.
With many of its staff travelling to work on motor cycles, the food manufacturer also wanted staff lockers that would be large enough to store helmets, jackets and other bulky outdoor wear. Action Storage’s crew lockers are fitted with a top shelf for storing helmets and have large compartments with double coat hooks. In fact, one version is designed to be large enough to store bullet proof vests and used as police lockers.
More information on Action Storage’s range of staff lockers and other storage equipment can be found on its website, where you can also order or download its new 160 page catalogue free of charge. The emergency services and other public sector organisations can place orders on credit with a valid purchase order, and all online orders receive a 5% discount.
