New Restaurant Food Safety White Paper
Exploring the role that mobile technology plays in the improvement of restaurant food safety
"Restaurants and Food Safety: How Mobile Software is changing the Game" discusses how restaurants can use mobile technology to ensure ongoing state and federal compliance, drive continuous operational improvement, and most importantly ── protect the health of their customers.
"While food safety management has improved dramatically over the years, there are still far too many incidents of people getting sick, even dying from contaminated food." said Ryan Lucas, Vice President of Global Sales at WorldAPP. "In fact, restaurants are responsible for 60% of all E.coli and Salmonella outbreaks in the US, causing more than 2,000 deaths and 77,000 hospitalizations each year."
In the paper, WorldAPP thought leaders explain that by using mobile forms embedded in food safety audit or inspection software, restaurants can proactively find and fix problems on an ongoing basis (rather than prepping for an external audit at the last minute). In doing so, restaurants have a greater chance of avoiding the damaging impact that a foodborne illness outbreak can cause.
"In this time of heightened consumer awareness, social media is shining a giant spotlight on the perils of serving tainted food," continued Lucas. "Customers are demanding accountability. Those who aren't being proactive, and those who are still performing inspections and audits with paper (even spreadsheets)
Lucas also noted that when safety leaders move from paper to digital and take the time to analyze the information they collect on a daily basis, they gain a better understanding of any problems that may be happening at a particularly store while maintaining a constant pulse on how safety initiatives are performing at every location.
