Maintaining the Appropriate Level of Quality in the Aspect of Machinery and Equipment Safety in Food Industry

Open access

Abstract

In the paper, the problem and importance of maintaining an appropriate level of quality in relation to labor protection in the light of EU and national legal standards have been presented. Maintenance of machines and, consequently, stability in the field of process quality is identified on the basis of specific management requirements according the machinery safety in food industry, also with respect to the sphere of their construction, production, distribution, and in particular exploitation. The food industry on global markets is characterized by a large variety of consumers. Therefore, both needs and requirements can have a very wide range, also with regard to quality criteria, care for the natural environment, development of technologies as well as new products introduction. Trends defining dynamics and competition in the food industry include a large number of factors, that require effective management, e.g.: quality ingredients of foodstuffs, preparation of products, maximum product safety as a measure of quality, application of modern production technologies (fast filling and packaging installations). Care for the safety of machinery and equipment used in industry and food processing is a guarantee of manufacturing products of the highest nutritional quality for consumers. With regard to ensuring the safety and quality of food products, in the paper the general principles in risk assessment and the technical measures to improve the safety of machines during their use have been presented.
