Best Sanitizers, Inc. Celebrates Annual Hand Hygiene Awareness Campaign by Providing Training, Support and Education to the Food Processing Industry | News
NEVADA CITY, CA., January 18, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Best Sanitizers, Inc. celebrates its annual hand hygiene awareness campaign in February. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that each year approximately 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) become ill, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die from foodborne illnesses. Hand washing can make a difference in cross-contamination by food production workers. Contaminated hands can transfer pathogens to surfaces, utensils, ingredients and finished food products.
To increase hand hygiene awareness, Best Sanitizers offers free hand hygiene training, advice and support to food manufacturers through on-site training or through online presentations. Interested food industry companies can learn more and schedule their training by calling Best Sanitizers at 888.225.3267.
Food manufacturers require their production workers to wash their hands multiple times throughout the day: before starting a shift, after using the bathroom, after lunch, after breaks, and after touching anything that could carry pathogens. Best Sanitizers follows these Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for proper handwashing technique: Wet hands thoroughly with clean running water, apply an adequate amount of soap, rub palms and backs of hands, rub thumbs and interlace fingers, rub fingertips in palm of opposite hand, rub wrists, rinse thoroughly under running water, dry hands thoroughly with disposable paper towel.
Best Sanitizers recommends using a quality hand soap like Alpet® Q E2 Disinfectant Foam Soap to reduce pathogens. Alpet Q E2 Disinfectant Foaming Soap is pH balanced and formulated with emollients to help keep employees’ hands soft and healthy, even with repeated use.
The goal of hand hygiene is to reduce the number of pathogens on the hands to as few as possible. Disinfecting hands after washing will further reduce colony forming units (CFU) on the hands, making it more difficult for germs to transfer to surfaces, utensils, ingredients and finished food products from contaminated hands.
For maximum pathogen reduction, Best Sanitizers recommends using an effective hand sanitizer, such as Alpet® E3 Plus Hand Sanitizer Spray. This added layer of pathogen reduction can significantly reduce the risk of cross-contamination. Its 71% ethanol formula is 99.9999% effective in killing 26 tested pathogens in 15 seconds. Alpet E3 Plus is formulated with emollients to keep hands soft and healthy, even with repeated use. As a spray, it applies lightly and leaves hands silky smooth, not heavy and sticky.
“Our goal is to promote and advance hand hygiene throughout the industry,” April Zeman-Lowe, Sales Director of Best Sanitizers – Food & Beverage Division. “We want to provide food industry professionals with the tools and education they need to reduce hand cross-contamination.”
