In a professional surrounding such as a restaurant, there is a high risk of micro-organisms spreading and contaminating food products due to a lack of hygiene and hygiene procedures.
Facts & figures – Did you know?
→ approximately 30% of viruses contaminating hands passed through to the surface!
One of the most important but easiest to overcome transmissions occur by the staff – to be more specific by the hands of the staff. Due to the COVID situation, hand hygiene has become more important than ever to ensure food safety and employee health. Therefore, to set a focus on effective and reliable hand hygiene is so important:
Example : Cross-contamination thourgh direct and indrect contact
In a professional kitchen, when preparing different dishes, it is essential to create hygiene barriers to stop routes of transmission.
→ NO direct contact between ingredients which are not meant to be prepared together
→ No indirect contact between raw and cooked ingredients by means of hands & equipment
This is why the easiest and most effective measures is the installation and use of hand hygiene equipment and solutions at critical points in order to prevent the entry of pathogens and to reduce cross contamination vectors – two essential pillars in a complete hygiene plan.
Kersia – Your Hand Hygiene Expert in Catering
Kersia is an experienced and trusted partner “from farm to fork” and offers in all business units exceptionally hand hygiene programs and solutions. The goal of our programme is to:
- Optimise hygiene performance in your restaurant
- Preserve the quality of your food
- Respect and preserve operators’ hands
- Protect the health of consumers and your employees
- Protect your brand image
A complete and efficient hand hygiene consists of washing, disinfecting, and nourishing. When possible, all three steps should be offered to achieve the best possible result:
• Washing, in order to prepare hands in the best possible way for disinfection,
• Disinfection for the removal of pathogens
• Hand nourishing in order to keep the hand skin of the personnel in a good condition which encourages your employees to use soap and disinfectant regularly.
Whereas washing is limited to areas with a water supply, disinfectants can be installed almost anywhere. The ideal situation is to keep accessibility as easy as possible and to train your staff in hand hygiene protocols, which means hand washing and disinfection between all steps of preparation and between different areas. Kersia can provide training for hands hygiene and put at disposal posters to help your staff to keep the best practices for hands hygiene in mind.
