Spartan Chemical SanitationCheck Facilitates Cost Re- ductions for Food Processing Facilities

Spartan Chemical Company, Inc., a

Training, validation, and documentation lead to a reduction in foodborne pathogen illnesses in foodborne pathogens.

recognized leader in the formulation and manufacture of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional market, announced today the availablity of SanitationCheck, a new managed sanitation program for food pro- cessing facilities. The emergence of foodborne pathogens

such as Listeria monocytogenes, Salmo- nella, E. coli 0157:H7, and Campylobacter have grabbed national media attention and awareness. In today’s world, it has become critically important to have an effective sanitation program as part of a HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) plan.

will include seven basic principles:

ard analysis, CCP (Critical Control Point) identification, establishing critical limits, monitoring procedures, corrective actions, verification procedures, and record-keep- ing and documentation. “All sanitation programs have the ul-

timate goal of reducing and or eliminat- ing all harmful contaminants,” says Chris Celusta, manager – food processing for Spartan Chemical. “Having an effective sanitation program not only ensures public safety but can help reduce costs by reduc- ing spoilage and waste, avoiding recalls, decreasing labor hours associated with cleaning, and lowering legal exposure .” It is scientifically proven that rigorous

and regular cleaning, as part of a HACCP plan, is associated with major decreases

In order for

an effective chemical sanitizer to work properly, the surface must be thoroughly cleaned prior to the application of the san- itizer. Training of sanitation staff on how to clean more thoroughly is paramount to the success of the program.

“The need for cleaning, sanitizing, and record-keeping is well documented in the food processing industry,” explains Ce- lusta. “Training of the sanitation staff is critical in order to maintain an effective program. Our approach is to train the staff with interactive education and validation tools that serve as on-going procedural and verification components in the HAC- CP program. The output of this training can be used to establish CCP limits and

The OmniFlex™ AutoVac™ is an automated high performance floor machine that rivals the performance of an autoscrubber – at a fraction of the cost! In fact, in tests performed by a major university, the AutoVac and autoscrubber both removed over 98% of targeted soil. Not bad when you consider that it costs about 90% less than an equivalently sized autoscrubber, and sometimes way less! Hard to believe? Stop by booth # 2539 for a demo of the “Unscrubber.”

identify the need for corrective actions.” SanitationCheck uses a three-pronged approach to ensure proper cleaning and sanitation is achieved – TRAINING, VAL- IDATION, and DOCUMENTATION. The CleanCheck® Program trains, tests, and certifies staff on HAZCOM, GHS, and OSHA Blood Borne Pathogen standards. Handy, portable Food Processing Training cards reinforce the training program and provide a framework for adherence to the standard going forward.

This process is

supported by ATP validation tools. ATP swabs and meter allow sanitation manag- ers to objectively train and assess staff cleaning operations while minimizing risk of transfer of harmful pathogens. The data can then be loaded into CompuClean® CMMS (Custodial Maintenance Manage- ment Software) which allows sanitation managers to document and monitor es- tablished CCP limits and verify program progress. In combination with Spartan’s wide range of cleaning and sanitizing chemicals, the system provides an end-to- end solution for HACCP plans. SanitationCheck is offered exclusively through Spartan’s select distributors. To find a distributor near you and start a Sani- tationCheck program in your facility, visit
