This article presents the results of the Food Safety and Security Study conducted by FoodService Director in the U.S. in 2005. More than 90 percent of operators surveyed are using locks to maintain food safety and security; other practices include limiting access to facilities, conducting background checks on employees and certifying suppliers. Locks, in fact, appear to be the most cost-effective way to enhance food security: 79 percent of respondents rated locks as low cost/high value, followed by limiting access to facilities and exploring suppliers' safety practices.
