When you win a championship, sometimes you get a ring, and sometimes you get a banner in the stadium to showcase your winnings. At Taylor, we go the banner route; we’re proud to showcase our success in the championship of food safety, SQF audits.


What is an SQF Certification?


SQF stands for safe, quality food. It’s an internationally recognized system designed and administered by the SQF Institute.  The institute sets the standards for companies in the foodservice industry. They’re designed to keep food production and preparation safe.

What are SQF Standards?


These are standards put in place to ensure that companies manage food safety risks appropriately. A company may apply for certification as a way to assure clients that they are practicing good hygiene and handling food correctly.

Basic food hygiene, like workers washing their hands before handling the food, make the world safer for all of us.

What are the SQF Levels?


There are three levels in total:

Level 1: This applies in cases where there are fewer risks, and it is the most basic level.

Level 2: Here, they set more rigorous standards. GFSI has created the benchmarks. Level 2 is a food safety plan that is HACCP certified.

Level 3: This is the highest standard and includes the same processes as Level 2. It’s a more comprehensive application of the rules.

A safe warehouse is one where safety is ingrained in the company culture, where everyone feels empowered to recommend safety improvements, and where frequent audits take place. The following warehouse safety tips can help you evaluate various areas in your warehouse operation to make employees safer while working on and around your warehouse equipment.

Here’s a Checklist One Might Add to a Routine Warehouse Safety Audit:

Electrical Safety


Ensure outlets function.

Install and maintain high-visibility lights.

Workspace Safety


Avoid slip and fall hazards by cleaning spills immediately.

Clear aisles to remove tripping hazards.

Make sure all work areas are kept clear of clutter.

Are staff Wearing the Right Gear?


Protective and high-visibility workwear should be worn by staff when working in the warehouse. For specific tasks, additional safety gear may be required, such as protective eyewear, gloves, earplugs, and hard hats. 

Fire Safety


Clearly mark all exits.

Remove all fire hazards.

Make sure extinguishers are easily accessible and up to code.

Make sure exits are free of obstructions.

Adequate Safety Signage? 


Signage acts as a constant reminder for staff to wear the appropriate safety gear and to abide by the warehouse safety procedures. Signage can also highlight any potential dangers throughout your facility, helping to avoid serious injuries or incidences in the warehouse.

Hazardous Material Safety


Clearly label all chemicals.

Make sure eyewash stations are in working order.

Make sure the MSDS for all chemicals are readily available to all employees.
