Wash your hands with soap and water. This is one of the most important ways to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Wash your hands after using the restroom; before, during, and after preparing food; before eating food; before and after caring for someone who is sick; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; and after handling animals and/or animal waste.
It is vital that good standards of personal hygiene are maintained by food handlers. Contaminated hands will spread bacteria around a kitchen very quickly. To prevent cross contamination of food it is essential to wash your hands frequently.
Go for an alcohol-based sanitizer
"To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him" - Buddha
"Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them" - Dalai Lama
Wash your hands (7 steps)
Use warm water and preferably antibacterial soap. After wetting hands, apply soap and use the following procedure to clean your hands thoroughly -
- Rub palm to palm
- Rub backs of both hands
- Rub palm to palm with fingers
- Rub backs of fingers (interlocked)

Prevention is better than cure
All cuts, wounds, sores should be covered with a waterproof dressing.
Over-clothing should be clean and present no risk of contamination to food.
Hair should be tidy and covered where necessary to prevent the risk of it falling into food.
Staff should report to their supervisor if they have had symptoms of diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps or fever. These may be indications that they have or have had food poisoning. They should also inform their supervisor if they have infected cuts or wounds, boils or sores that may lead to the contamination of foods.
