According to the Food Standards Agency (FSA), it is estimated that up to 5.5 million people in the UK are affected by food poisoning each year, which costs the economy just under £1.4 billion.
With hands being the main vehicle for transporting bacteria to high risk foods, food handlers are consistently implicated in these incidents, with 36% of outbreaks said to be traced to poor personal hygiene.
It is not considered reasonable to install cameras in a toilet area so how do you know that everyone of your employees are following a professional hand hygiene routine? Even with the very best practices in place somewhere along your food processing line you know that someone could let you down causing contamination by simply opening a door and the repercussions are only going to cost the business time and money.
