Power outage preparation and recovery

Power failures can be critical situations at sites where the environment and public safety are at risk, such as hospitals, restaurantsgrocery storeshotels, etc. The interruption of electrical service is an imminent health hazard in any food service establishment, particularly because it can hamper a facility’s ability to refrigerate and cook foods, as well as sanitize properly.

Food safety in a power outage

One of the biggest dangers of a power outage is how it affects food. Temperature abused foods can grow harmful bacteria and spoil, putting people at risk for foodborne illness. Appropriate responses must take place to maintain food safety. Many Time and Temperature Control for Safety (TCS) foods may need to be destroyed if they go out of safe temperature range.
