How to take care of The Food Prep Table Servsafe
Keep in mind that your prep area must be cleaned on a regular basis and under no circumstances should chemicals or electronic devices be kept on or around your prep table.

Preventing Cross-Contamination When Prepping Food
When you prep food, you may handle both raw and ready-to-eat food items. Pathogens can be transferred from one food to another if you are not careful. That could make you or your guests sick. To stay safe, follow these guidelines.
Make sure workstations, cutting boards, equipment, and utensils are cleaned and sanitized.
Do NOT allow ready-to-eat food to touch surfaces that have come in contact with raw meat, seafood, or poultry.
Prep raw meat, seafood, and poultry at a different time than ready to-eat food when using the same table.
Clean and sanitize work surfaces, utensils, and equipment between each product.
