SITHKOP001 information from


This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to clean food preparation areas, storage areas, and equipment in commercial kitchens to ensure the safety of food. It requires the ability to work safely and to use resources efficiently to reduce negative environmental impacts.

This unit is particularly important within a food safety regime and applies to all hospitality and catering organisations with kitchen premises, including permanent or temporary kitchens or smaller food preparation areas. These can be found within restaurants, cafes, kiosks, cafeterias, clubs, hotels, attractions and in catering facilities.

The unit applies to kitchen personnel who work with very little independence and under close supervision, including kitchen attendants and stewards. It can also apply to cooks and chefs in small organisations.
