Dealers and installers are being invited to see why there is more to commercial kitchen drainage than meets the eye at a free industry event scheduled for next month.
The event is being organised by ACO Building Drainage, which says it is one of several initiatives it is running to help raise the profile of hygienic drainage and the key issues surrounding it.
An informative mix of seminars and clinics has been lined up for 12 June, with the event taking place at the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s (CIEH) HQ in London.
As well as exploring the requirements of the commercial kitchen and food processing sectors, it will highlight the importance of best-in-class drainage design when it comes to ensuring a hygienic and safe environment.
“Drainage is often an afterthought when it comes to the design and build of commercial kitchens and food processing facilities,” said Andy Buchan, divisional managing director for ACO Building Drainage. “However, when consider the vital role it plays in ensuring a safe and hygienic working environment it’s clear that it should be an important priority.”
Speakers will include CIEH chairman Geoff Ward and the Society of Public Health Engineers (SoPHE) chairman Chris Northey, as well as Dr. John Holah, business development manager for hygiene at Campden BRI and the FCSI’s Duncan Hepburn.
“This free educational event features a number of key industry spokespeople who will be highlighting some of the main issues associated with hygienic drainage,” added Buchan.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to take part in two out of four interactive clinic sessions.
– The role of prerequisites in a HACCP system of food safety management.
– Resin floors: Cleaning up on slip and trip.
– European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG).
– The future of drainage.
The one-day-long event kicks off at 8.30pm and will run until 3pm. More details can be found by clicking here.
