Food safety

Within the alimentary sector, hand hygiene is especially important for professionals who are in direct contact with foodstuff, such as chefs, waiting staff or indudstrial food manufacturers. A study carried out by the CDC -Center for Disease Control and Prevention- in 2013 found out that professionals working in U.S. located restaurants wash their hands an average of 27% times of what they should.

A proper hand hygiene could prevent the transmission of bacteria, thus avoid infections of customers caused by what they consume, either at a restaurant of bought from the market/supermarket.
