Food Handlers must wash their hands properly before putting on gloves. Gloves are not a substitute for regular proper hand washing but food handlers should use in conjunction with proper hand washing to help reduce the chances for foodborne illnesses..

Food Handlers should wash their hands:

• Before beginning food preparation

• Before beginning a new task

• After touching equipment such as refrigerator doors or utensils that have not been cleaned and sanitized

• After contacting chemicals

• When interruptions in food preparation occur, such as when answering the telephone or checking in a delivery

• When handling money

• Anytime a glove is torn, damaged, or soiled

• Anytime contamination of a glove might have occurred
