Violation ExplanationOfficial Report Wording, Item #38
Lighting adequate, shields provided. (1 pt.)
PUBLIC HEALTH REASON
Light levels are specified so that sufficient light is available to enable workers to work safely, read labels, identify toxic materials, recognize the condition of food, utensils and other supplies, and to evaluate cleaning. Sufficient light makes the need for cleaning apparent by making any accumulation of food spills and other soil conspicuous. Lights that are shielded, coated or shatter resistant, help prevent breakage and potential contamination of food, clean equipment, utensils and single service items from fragments of glass should a bulb break.
