Businesses in the food and hospitality industries are threatened by a variety of pests, including ants, cockroaches, rats and mice, which means regular inspections conducted by a leading pest control specialist are essential if you’re to maintain a zero-tolerance policy to pests in your workplace. Any sign of pest infestations could not only damage the way your business is seen by your customers, but may also be a serious breach of health and safety regulations that could result in hefty penalties.
From an economic, hygienic and regulatory perspective, pest control is essential to protecting the reputation of businesses by managing the threat pests present to organisations of all sizes, such as:
- Physical contamination of cooked foods and processed food products
- Transmission of diseases including bacteria, helminths, protozoa and viruses
Also, pests present problems for businesses with regard to legislation, as effective measures need to be implemented to prevent the contamination of food and processed food products by pests.
