When extra care is needed & Extra care for babies

If you work as a food handler you should take extra precautions – and these might be required by your employer. It's best to keep nails short and not to use artificial nails or nail varnish. Always use waterproof dressings to cover any cuts or sores.

Healthcare professionals and others who look after the sick also need to take extra care.
Antiseptic or alcohol based hand washing solutions provide extra safety.

Personal Hygiene

Keep the kitchen extra clean – especially the floor where
babies love to crawl. Wipe high chairs, bibs and eating
areas before and after every meal.

Keep dirty nappies away from food and food preparation
areas and always wash hands after handling dirty nappies
. Teach young children about hand washing and good
hygiene habits from an early age.
