By using wireless temperature probes and Zebra’s MC40 mobile computers, the automated Disney CHEFS, powered by iCertainty software system, can provide real-time information on food safety performance.
The Disney CHEFS solution follows the Hazards Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system’s international guidelines that identify the precautions that companies should take to keep food safe. The Disney CHEFS software system can electronically monitor every aspect of preparation – from hand washing to cooking and storage temperatures.
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has deployed Disney CHEFS solution in more than 700 food and beverage locations throughout its US domestic parks and resorts, Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disney Resort and is continuing its implementation with the Disney Cruise Line.
The MC40 provides one-touch access to all the HACCP checklists and procedures that employees are required to follow to maintain food safety. The Disney CHEFS solution can also alert employees if food is not at an acceptable temperature or when critical measurements have not been recorded – helping avoid potential problems before they become an issue.
“Safety should always be an organization’s number one focus,” said Greg Hale, chief safety officer and VP of worldwide safety, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “At Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, we believe it is our responsibility to share our safety technologies and best practices to increase the safety awareness of companies and agencies around the world.”
