Hand Hygiene in the Food Industry

Hand Hygiene in the Food Industry

Hand hygiene is essential in food preparation areas. Knowing which products to use and making sure personnel wash their hands correctly is of the upmost importance to reduce the risk of cross contamination.


The Food Standards Agency states that all staff should wash their hands properly:
  •  when entering the food handling area, e.g. after a break or going to the toilet
  •  before preparing food
  •  after touching raw food, such as meat/poultry, fish, eggs and unwashed fruit and vegetables
  •  after handling food waste or emptying a bin
  •  after cleaning
  •  after blowing their nose
  •  after touching phones, light switches, door handles and cash registers, or other surfaces that could come into contact with staff handling raw food

Staff should dry their hands thoroughly on a disposable towel – harmful bacteria can spread more easily if your hands are wet or damp. Use the disposable towel to turn off the tap.
