Everyone deserves to live a long and healthy life in a safe environment, wouldn't you agree? Let's work together to help communities prevent food-related sickness.

If you work in food processing, food handling, cleaning, manufacturing, or warehouse supply industry, color-coded tools are a great tool to help you eliminate cross-contamination in your workplace. 

This #NationalPublicHealthWeek visit The5SStore.com to get color-coded cleaning tools!


Why color code? 

  • • It helps to prevent cross-contamination between areas. 
    • Food Contact areas with non-food contact areas. 
    • Raw with cooked. 
    • Allergen products with non-allergen products. 
    • Restrooms from a production area. 
  • • Reduces cleaning tools migration from one department to another. 
  • • Ship safer products. 
  • • Also reduces training time, it’s easily understood by workers. 

A Sample Plan:

WHITE = Food Contact Surfaces
BLUE = Non-Food Contact Surfaces
RED = Sanitation
ORANGE = Allergen Line
YELLOW = Restrooms
GREEN = Maintenance
GRAY = Waste or Trash
BLACK = Floor Drains
