Follow These Agriculture Biosecurity Protocols to Protect Employees and Customers

There is no question that biosecurity is one of the most important issues affecting agriculture today. As COVID-19 continues to infect people, they are increasingly worried about the safety of their food – and farmers are concerned about the safety of their employees. The good news is that there are agriculture biosecurity protocols that can help protect both employees and customers.

Read on to learn about some of the best protocols. If you have not yet invested in a hot water pressure washer, contact Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 . We can help determine the best machine for your specific needs.

Keep an Eye on Outdoor and Indoor Cleaning Needs

As you look to find the best protocols to keep your farm clean and disinfected, do not forget to consider all parts of your farm – both inside and out. This includes everything you use on your farm, such as vehicles and equipment for waste disposal. One simple example is using wash plates to make sure that the tires of vehicles coming in and out of your farm are disinfected.

Wash Bays and Areas Should Be Away from Livestock Areas

You need to prevent contamination that could happen if the wind and the spray get together in just the “right” way. Every time you load and unload animals, the vehicle they were transported in must be thoroughly cleaned. If you keep your wash bays and wash areas too close together, it is all too easy for cross-contamination to occur, which would only to work compound any issues you are already having.

Focus on Cleaning the Routes Between Buildings

Cleaning the routes between buildings on your property can prevent waste from building up, keep dirt and animal feed where they came from, and help prevent both vermin and dangerous feral animals. Simply following regular cleaning practices between properties could help reduce the chance of contamination, you might otherwise risk with wild animals.

Know Your Black and White Areas

It is important to keep black and white areas separate. White areas are places like walls, floors, showers, and locker rooms. These are areas that can be cleaned with steam cleaners, wet vacs, or regular vacuum cleaners. Black areas include changing rooms, stables, barns, sties, and all administration areas. These are areas that should be cleaned with high-pressure washers and a strong detergent.

Focus on Your Water Recycling System

Now might be a great time for you to use a water recycling system or it might be a terrible time – it all depends on what contaminates are in your water. If it’s possible to use it for your industry, you can save money, save time, and keep the environment safe and secure.

Quality & Innovation Since 1985

From simple beginnings in 1985, Hydro Tek has grown to become the most trusted name in the pressure washer manufacturing industry.

How did we do it? By continually focusing on quality and reliability as the key to customer satisfaction, and by incorporating the latest technologies into our design and manufacturing processes.

By 1991, we were using computer-aided drafting systems to refine our product designs and improve efficiency. In 1997, we brought the power of computers to the shop floor by incorporating laser-cutting and other CNC manufacturing machinery, and in 2001 we began focusing on improving efficiency through the latest manufacturing techniques. The end result has been superior products delivered at a superior value to our customers. Through the next decade, we look forward to fulfilling our vision of making our products the "obvious choice" for all your industrial and commercial cleaning needs.
