We recently shared a blog post about the importance of ergonomic solutions in catering, and just how using the right equipment can positively impact the health and wellbeing of staff. Ergonomic solutions are just as important in medical settings, and ensuring technicians are protected in their day-to-day roles can keep staff happy and processes efficient.
Caring for the environment has never been more important, and one of the biggest issues we still face today is the wastage of food. According to the Waste and Resources Action Programme, food waste amounts to around £19 billion per year. What’s even more worrying is that 6.4 million tonnes could have been eaten, which is the equivalent of over 15 billion meals.
Maintaining proper sterile storage conditions is essential to ensure no damage is caused to equipment and sterile packages while being stored. Having insufficient space for sterile equipment is a common issue, and most medical departments are limited in the storage space they can provide. Because of this, space can quickly become filled, meaning different departments may need to rethink their spaces and procedures.
One thing we know about the pandemic is just how much it’s changed the world and how it will continue to change how we do things for the rest of our lives. However, despite the success of the vaccine roll out and the effectiveness of previous lockdown measures, the future of living with COVID is something we’re yet to fully understand.
Hygienic design is a must when creating quality catering equipment, and the pandemic has only increased the need to keep surfaces and equipment sterile. The right design will not only help to make sanitary practices easier and more thorough, but it can also help to create safe food preparation areas and protect your customers from contaminated food, which could make them ill.
Here at Hupfer, we believe in ergonomic solutions for healthy working. In the research, design and manufacture stages of creating our products, we understand how important it is to tailor each individual product to its operator, and ergonomics should be a crucial factor in every product and environment created.
Every commercial kitchen has the need for refrigeration equipment. Storing food items correctly, whether in a restaurant, cafe or for catering events, or even when transporting food from A to B, should be of prime importance to keep food fresh and safe for consumption.
With anything in life, you get what you pay for. Cheap options can end up costing you more in the long run with replacements and repairs, and even though it may seem like an attractive short-term fix, the quality just won’t last. By buying once and buying well, you’ll not only find quality items that last, but they can also pay for themselves in the long run.
Learning how to maximise your commercial kitchen’s storage space can be quite the task. Commercial kitchens can be busy, chaotic and challenging spaces, which is why having the right storage solutions is invaluable to your processes. The best way to stay organised with each service is to have a well set out space and equipment you can trust to get the best out of your kitchen and use it to its full potential.
COVID-19 continues to have a big impact on planned surgery in the UK, with the backlog still a concern for the NHS. It’s clear the National Health Service has suffered dramatically since the start of the pandemic, and that’s before we dig deeper into all the statistics.
Medical transport solutions can make jobs easier, create more secure processes as well as speed up the day to day tasks of many medical professionals. To make sure these professionals are always at the top of their game when it comes to working in their demanding environment, we created our range of medical transport solutions for efficient and effective working.
Where would commercial kitchens be without GN containers? They’re the industry standard in catering and here at Hupfer, we offer various sizes and depths, along with different styles of lids to suit all cooking/serving requirements.
