Liquid Nitrogen (Kitchen) Job Safety Analysis (JSA) Form Mobile App
Cooking and freezing food with liquid nitrogen is trendy and popular, but brave new chefs need to be aware of the risks of this hazardous chemical.
How does it work?
The Liquid Nitrogen (Kitchen) Job Safety Analysis (JSA) Form mobile app provides safety regulations to promote a safe work environment. Instead of using paper forms, this app automates the entire process so it can be accessed by a mobile device or tablet.
Using risk assessment, the JSA app provides a safety checklist to ensure hazards are minimized and safe practices are followed. Liquid nitrogen is a cryogenic liquid that has a low boiling point temperature of -321 degrees Fahrenheit. Although it often appears as a gas, it's actually the liquid that is used to freeze food quickly without creating large ice crystals. Users need to be aware that it also causes cryogenic burning of skin, so personal protective equipment, such as insulated gloves and safety glasses, must be worn when working with liquid nitrogen. Training is a large component of a comprehensive training program so personnel will know what do if an emergency response is required.
Liquid nitrogen can produce toxic gases that can build up in a confined space, so good ventilation or a fume hood is necessary. The JSA app also includes warnings to never serve items to your customers that are too cold and do not hold containers of liquid nitrogen with one hand. Storage of liquid nitrogen should never be in closed tanks unless the container can hold 1000 psi or better. The app records all your safety data and more. And the safety data sheet fields can be edited to match your unique kitchen. It also allows you to maintain an electronic copy for your paperless recordkeeping system. Save time and money by skipping data entry by choosing GoCanvas Applications that smoothly record information using a smartphone or tablet. Never be without your forms again.
