When ice is used for cooling make sure the containers are covered at least 3/4 of the way. Tomatoes and all cut melons are going to be potentially hazardous foods under the new regulations and need to be time or temperature controlled. Dented cans need to be separate from none dented cans. Make sure mops are hung or inverted for proper air dry. The PSI gauge on the dishmachine is broke and needs repaired. Make sure when fixed that during the rinse cycle, the PSI gauge must read between 15-25. Run the dishmachine two or more times before using to get to proper temperature, the rinse cycle should be between 180-194. Thermometers still needed in both prep units. When unit "salad bar" is turned on cover with empty pans to prevent cold air from escaping out of the top and make sure unit holds at 41 or lower.

Don't forget to invert mop heads when not in use to allow for proper air drying and to keep sanitizer levels around 200 PPM (Quat). Be sure gloves are changed appropriately when needed. Dishwasher uses high heat sanitizer. Good food labeling and nice clean ice machine. Be sure to check expiration dates on all products in storage. Be sure to change foods on buffet every four hours if holding higher than 41 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure cold foods hold lower than 41 degrees Fahrenheit and hot foods above 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
