Backflow Prevention Methods

Vacuum breaker

Air gap

Garbage containers must be
   

Leakproof, waterproof, and pestproof Easy to clean Kept covered when not in use Cleaned frequently inside and out

Present a five-minute presentation on cross connection and backflow prevention. Explain the differences in the devices used to prevent backflow.

Challenge participants to identify actions to be taken after an interruption in the potable water supply. Create a quick sketch of a workstation designed for food safety. Challenge participants to identify the requirements of a proper handwashing station.
