News » Is Refrigeration Top Of Your Priorities? It Should Be!
Whatever your commercial property, refrigeration is probably something you take for granted…until it goes wrong. If you’re in an office block, you probably use the fridge to keep your milk chilly & your sandwiches cool. If you’re in catering you might value your refrigeration equipment a little bit more, but it’s still probably not something that you’d list amongst the most important things in your business.
But the truth is, it should be.
Failing to look after your refrigeration equipment could prove detrimental to your business. If food/drink is not kept at the correct temperature and you then knowingly or unknowingly sell this for consumption, you are to blame for anything that happens as a result of this. So, if you’re a restaurant owner with a faulty fridge, you prepare a meal with food that hasn’t been cooled properly and a customer eats this meal, you’re putting your clientele at risk of food poisoning. This makes you liable for their illness. On the other hand, if the office refrigerator dies, you face an office full of grumpy staff whose food will go off, that can’t have their caffeine fixes and you’ll be left with an army of employees angry with you, under performing because they aren’t as comfortable as they can be in the workplace. Underperformance will lead to lower output and will ultimately result in your business suffering.
Regular maintenance is key. Having your equipment regularly maintained means it’s less likely to suffer faults, reducing the risk of giving you a headache as the manager/owner of a commercial property. It’ll also save you money in the form of costly call out charges and repair bills.comments powered by Disqus
