health departments will provide scoring on various ele- ments of food safety totaling 100 points. Operators can provide incentives for stores that reach specific scoring levels, our experts recommend. Retailers can also provide rewards for team members that complete food safety certi- fication and training, and retraining. Some CSNews How To Crew members recommend that general store audits should also include some level of food safety inspection as a key component. For example, coolers, freezers and hot holding case temperatures can be easily checked and logged in a store audit. A good habit for operators to get into is keeping the kitchen and preparation areas clean and in such good condition that they would be presentable to a customer if they were to walk through. Lastly, share the good news, not only with store employees and top-level executives, but customers, too. "Post good health department scores where people can see them. Be proud if you do it well," Mandeltort said.
