           Caring for



           A survey undertaken by British warewashing
           brand, Classeq, has found that almost a third of
           operators surveyed do not actively practise an
           ongoing cleaning and maintenance schedule for
           their warewashing equipment. Alarmingly, these
           operators simply wait for their equipment to go
           wrong before reaching out to solve the problem.
              Adam Lenton, Marketing Manager, Classeq, said:
           “30% of those asked admitted that they don’t follow
           recommended guidelines and leave things ‘to chance’.
           Operators can get more from their equipment and
           enjoy longer and better performance if a simple
           cleaning routine and basic maintenance schedule are adhered to.”
              According to Classeq, keeping on top of a little everyday cleaning will make a huge difference to the final results
           that come out of the washer. Training staff properly on how to run and maintain a machine helps to ensure the
           machines run at optimum efficiency and for the longest period, avoiding costly mistakes that can lead to damage
           over time and limit the lifespan of a machine.

        eLearning and ‘train the trainer’.
