How clean are your employees hands?

Cleanliness is next to ……….. food poisoning? How clean are your team’s hands?
How hot is your kitchen this week? Very, I hear you shout. Unfortunately, bacteria loves this level of heat. It is the perfect heat for multiplication of bacteria so it is essential to keep all your chopping boards, knives, work surfaces and hands scrupulously clean.
The most common cause of food poisoning illness is from human bacteria (ie. your staff). So check that your whole team adheres to the following hand washing procedure:–
Wash hands with antibacterial handwash soap and use hot water. Wash hands thoroughly including the palms and between the fingers. Use blue roll or handtowels to dry hands.
Wash hands –
- After a toilet break
- After sneezing, coughing
- After touching hair
- After handling raw foods
- After changing any task within the kitchen
- Before handling food
- After taking in deliveries.
