Restaurant Safety and Maintenance Checklist

Use this restaurant safety and maintenance checklist to prevent unnecessary expenses for damage and liabilities. Restaurant Safety and Preventive maintenance is key in keeping your restaurant in great shape. Being proactive about equipment maintenance can help to avoid costly repairs and health and safety violations.

    Areas to include in your checklist

  • Floor maintenance: The most important step in maintaining a commercial-grade kitchen floor is by keeping it clean

  • Ranges: Kitchen ranges are one of the most used piece of equipment in the kitchen. If they break down, their failure will not only cost you money but it will decrease the efficiency of your kitchen.

  • Griddles, grills and fryers: Meals are cooked on griddles, grills and in fryers in many commercial kitchens. They are easy to use, easy to clean and help maximize space.

  • Fridges and freezers: An important part of commercial kitchen maintenance involves keeping an eye on all the different elements of your commercial refrigerators and freezers. Careful temperature control is vital in preserving food and extending the life of cold and frozen items. When a refrigerator or freezer goes down in a commercial restaurant, it could mean thousands of dollars in lost food.

  • Storage spaces: Dry food storage areas should be cleaned, organized, inspected and maintained regularly.

  • Dishwashers and sinks: Whether you hand wash your dishes or have them cleaned by a commercial cleaning system, you'll need to keep dishes clean and sanitized to maintain an orderly, clean kitchen.
