Avoid Common Sanitary Violations	
Follow the steps below to practice A-grade food safety  
and keep your customers safe from food-borne illness.  
Avoid the most commonly cited violations and improve  
your chances to achieve an “A.”  
Be sure employees are trained in basic food  
safety and supervised by someone who has   
a food protection certificate.
n Arrange work schedules so that a supervisor with a food 
protection certificate is on duty whenever your restaurant 
is receiving or preparing food, or is open to the public.
n Train supervisors to use the Self-Inspection Worksheet to  regularly evaluate and improve the restaurant’s condition 
and employees’ food safety practices.
n Provide food safety training for all employees who  
handle food. 
Hold food at the proper temperature. 
n Review Health Department rules for temperature- holding requirements.
n Be sure equipment used to hold hot and cold food  is working properly.
n Use thermometers to monitor the temperature of foods  in hot or cold storage.
n Track food taken from hot or cold storage, and record  how long it is out.
Control conditions that promote pests.
n Seal all cracks, crevices and holes in walls, cabinets and doors to prevent rodents, cockroaches and flies from entering.
