Face closure unless hand hygiene covered

Food operators must have access to hot running water and soap wherever they are working with food or face closure if appropriate hand-washing facilities are unavailable.

“Mobile vendors and outdoor caterers need access to hand wash facilities on the go as cross-contamination is a real threat and safeguarding customers against bacteria is essential,” says Manty Stanley, managing director at TEAL.

“The guideline from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health is clear - ‘at food outlets where high risk foods are handled, alcohol-based hand gel/sanitiser must only be used as a supplement to a fully equipped wash hand basin’[1].

“This advice coupled with a report from the Health Protection Agency last year suggesting food, chopping boards and cleaning cloths tested from mobile and outdoor food vendors were contaminated with a range of bacteria, including E-Coli[2], just highlights why hand hygiene should be a top priority,” says Manty.

TEAL design and manufacture a range of portable hand wash units which require no access to mains water or plumbing.

This includes the Super Stallette – a practical and portable unit with a unique blue sensor that triggers a 10-second wash cycle - and the BigSynk® which has a large bowl making it suitable for arm washing too.

All units are available for purchase or hire and available for delivery across mainland UK within 24 hours.
