Hand Hygiene Guidance:

The CDC and WHO best practice guidance for hand hygiene both state the most effective way to remove microbes and germs and stop the spread of infectious disease is by frequently and thoroughly hand washing with soap and water. Lathering your hands for 20-seconds with soap creates friction which will help lift dirt, grease and microbes from skin. The surfactants in soap also bind to fat, oil and grease molecules which then disperses and carries the molecules away from surface. It is important to note that alcohol-based hand sanitizer rubs can be used in the absence of hand wash stations only if the employee’s hands are not visibly soiled. If hands are visibly soiled, hand sanitizer rubs are not as effective.

We adhere to this guidance and suggest as a best practice procedure for employee hand hygiene prior to entering food production areas:  Wash hands thoroughly with soap and fresh running water lathering/scrubbing hands for at least 20-seconds, rinse with clean running water, dry hands thoroughly with paper towels or warm air hand dryer, disinfect/sanitize hands with an alcohol based rub.
