Handwashing

Video | 12 March 2020

Cross-contamination by the transfer of pathogenic or food spoilage organisms can be a significant issue. Hands are one of the most common vehicles for transfer of microorganisms to high-risk products and can become contaminated in a number of ways. Lack of hand washing when required and not following a correct hand washing procedure are the most common problems observed. 

General Advice from Public Health England related to the COVID-19 control.

'Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.'

Good hand hygeine helps to prevent the spread of micro-organisms and is an essential part of protecting your health and that of those around you.
