Keep forms for a year. • Ensure cooking and refrigeration equipment is working at correct temperatures. Keep equipment serviced per manufacturer’s instructions and keep records in a permanent file. • Department director and Chef are responsible for completing checks and ensuring forms are completed and initialed.
