The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Preventive Controls for Human Food rule stresses the importance of employee health, hygiene, and education, said the firm.
Food manufacturers require production employees to wash their hands repeatedly throughout the day: before starting a shift, after using the restroom, after lunch, after breaks, and after touching anything that might carry pathogens including their face.
All that hand washing is crucial to reducing cross-contamination but it can also cause hands to become dry and irritated, resulting in a reluctance by employees to wash hands as often, or for as long, as they should.
Best Sanitizers said by creating products that employees want to use, hand hygiene compliance will increase.
The firm claims its products are used in more than 8,000 US food processing facilities.
It offers hand soaps and hand sanitizers, dispensers, surface sanitizers, surface sanitizing wipes, footwear sanitizers, industrial cleaners, and related accessories.
