According to the decision of the federal government, each retailer is obliged to develop their own hygiene concept based on an adapted risk assessment and a company pandemic plan. This will aim to limit customer-to-employee contact to keep the risk of infection to a minimum. At present, this mainly refers to the special situation caused by the corona pandemic.
Hygiene is an important part of quality assurance. Each component of the plan should be kept in individual documents, such as the hygiene concept, cleaning, and disinfection plan, etc. for easy access. Each concept should be individually adapted to the current conditions in and around the shops, and it should also adhere to company and local authority requirements
A retail store’s management is responsible for drawing up and adhering to their own hygiene concept. If necessary, they can delegate the task to the person responsible for occupational safety or appoint a commissioner or hygiene team.
Those responsible for hygiene management in the retail trade must fulfill the following tasks:
First of all, the hygiene management team will carry out the inspection via a checklist. In this way, they can more easily identify areas of improvement, such as which hygiene measures should be implemented, how they should be carried out, and which ones are already in place. The current status of these inspections will support future planning and revisal.
A hygiene checklist in the retail trade helps representatives to implement the essential measures quickly and efficiently, monitor them over a longer period, and, if necessary, adapt them immediately to new requirements. Compliance with hygiene measures is of fundamental importance for every retailer.
A checklist helps the hygiene team work more efficiently, protecting the business from unforeseen downtime, costly fines, and store closures. Regular hygiene inspections, combined with an effective checklist, helps ensure that measures are safely implemented and problem areas are identified early. Below are the 3 steps that enable an effective hygiene concept checklist:
A paper-based hygiene concept can make data collection and maintenance tedious. Creating a paper-based report can be challenging for hygiene managers when trying to add photographic evidence and additional comments. Not to mention, paper documents can easily get lost or damaged in the daily grind with unpleasant consequences. Lumiform can help with this and all your retail audit or retail store safety inspection preparation needs.
