Ice Cream Van Risk Assessment

Vehicle

Our vehicles are regularly serviced in order to ensure there is no environmental damage or risk of injury to others, all vehicles are checked once per week for leaks of any kind which maybe of damage to the environment & or person, I also personally assess the exterior of the vehicles to ensure it is child / customer friendly (my assessment covers the following)

Identify any hot elements on the exterior following immediate use
Identify any sharp objects (bumpers, rust spots)
Aesthetic Assessment
Leaks of fluids (oil, antifreeze, brake fluid)

Staff are not permitted to exceed 50mph in any of our vehicles

Hygiene

The interior of the vehicle current meets the minimum standard or higher for food hygiene use. All surfaces are cleaned hourly with an antibacterial agent, sterile handwash tubs are present it all vehicles for staff to use upon returning to work following a lunch or break.

All vehicles have hot water facilities and clean linen changed twice daily or more dependent on use

All vehicles have washing facilities for my equipment use, (scoops, containers etc)

All staff are provided with clean aprons at the start of each shift and are cleaning at the end of each shift, however spares are carried onboard should a staff member need to change during a shift rotation.

All our staff has at least the minimum food hygiene certifications before they are allowed to commence work in our vehicles, these are carried in the vehicle should they need to be inspected by the relevant authorities (copies available on request)

All vehicles are provided with at least 1 fire extinguishing equipment

All vehicles are least once per week are stripped and sterilised (this includes the interior of food storage units, fridges, floors, and walls)

All freezer/fridge units are equip with thermometers to ensure they are maintained at the standards required for the food stuffs in question, these are checked 3 times daily.

Exterior waste bins are provided for customer use if local facilities are not available

Environment

A visual assessment at the start of each shift is made to ensure there are not local environment issues which could affect customers or the operation of my vehicle for example:

Parking the vehicle near an open drain
Parking the vehicle near animal faeces
Parking the vehicle near animals in the wild or contained
Parking the vehicle on uneven ground where customers could injury themselves etc

Where issues are identified the risk is either escalated to the relevant party or rectified where possible by myself or one of my team

Summary

All in all a high level of common sense and conscience mind set is a requirement of all my staff reference for the Health & Safety aspects of operating one of my vehicles.

Whilst the above is not exhaustive it does capture the main elements which are considered continuously by each and every member of my team.

If you do wish to discuss any elements in more details please contact me where I would be happy to demonstrate the above standards and methods of practice.
