Good Occupational Hygiene

Hand Washing

In order to reduce the risk of infection by biological agents follow good occupational hygiene practices:

  • Wash hands regularly and especially before eating, drinking or smoking.
  • Wash any cuts and grazes immediately with soap and running water.
  • Cover any existing cuts, abrasions or breaks in the skin with waterproof dressings and/or gloves.
  • Avoid hand to mouth/eye contact.
  • Take rest breaks, including eating meals and taking drinks, away from potentially contaminated work areas.
