Hand Washing

Make the Workplace Safer

  • Keep all restrooms clean and report any problems with restrooms to your Supervisor.
  • When possible use washing facilities that provide hot water.
  • If water is spilled, make sure it doesn’t become a slip hazard.

    Follow Safe Work Practices

  • Always use warm water and liquid soap.
  • Work up a good lather that covers the entire hand and wrist. Rinse the soap off and dry your hands using disposable towels, not your apron.
  • Make sure you properly dispose of the paper towel.
  • Always cover any open sores on your hands with a sterile medical covering after you wash your hands.
  • If you handle raw food, wearing the proper gloves is always advisable.
  • Fingernails should be short and clean.
  • Nail polish, false nails and acrylic nails should not be worn while handling food.
