Food safety can’t be in the form. In theory, wearing gloves has its advantages. The disadvantages are: the temperature of the glove is close to the body temperature, the moisture is difficult to disperse, and the humidity is suitable. It can also breed a large number of microorganisms, thus giving the microorganisms secondary pollution. Ambushing a numbness, the advantage is: because the gloves are isolated, the disinfection intensity can be increased, and the microorganisms can be killed more thoroughly, providing a higher safety factor for production. Therefore, the re-emphasis on the risk of microbial risk and cross-contamination of gloves caused by environmental factors such as psychology, humidity and temperature is helpful to remind relevant personnel to eliminate paralysis and give more attention to food safety and employee health.
So, which of the gloves and automatic sensor sterilizer is more conducive to food safety?
Wearing gloves for food production and processing seems to have become a symbol of food safety, but in fact, this sense of security is only a false indication of the surface. Even better gloves are not likely to replace regular, thorough hand washing. Wearing gloves does not adequately prevent food contamination when processing direct foods. Conversely, because the wrong psychological cues may encourage some of the risky behavior of the operator to cause unforeseen risks.
For food practitioners, hand disinfection is a simple and negligible link that is largely ignored. There are many opportunities for bacteria, viruses, and dirt to come into contact with the outside world, and it is easy to be soiled. There are about 800,000 bacteria in a pair of unwashed hands. If the first hand disinfection is not complete, or if the hands are re-sterilized by the second hand disinfection within 60 to 90 minutes, even if the previously sterilized food is easily contaminated by the hand bacteria, the food will be cross-contaminated for the future. Mildew leaves a hidden danger.
Enterprises should establish a sanitation and disinfection procedure for “automatic hand washing, automatic hand drying, automatic disinfection”, and implement “GMP”, “SSOP”, “HACCP” and “QS” hygiene procedures, if each key position requires hand disinfection. Install an automatic sensor hand sterilizer, which meets the standard requirements, saves a lot of disinfectant, improves work efficiency, avoids secondary pollution before and after disinfection, and quickly kills hand bacteria, and calculates the time after the first sterilization. The hands are re-sterilized every 60 to 90 minutes to block the growth and reproduction of the bacteria in the hands.
After installing the automatic sensor hand sterilizer, if 75% medical alcohol is used as the disinfection medium, the process is: “Induction soap machine hand washing – faucet washing – inductive drying – inductive hand disinfection”; using other disinfectant as the disinfecting medium : “Induction of soap machine washing hands – faucet washing – inductive hand disinfection – inductive drying”; it is recommended to choose the previous method, because there is no residue in the hands after the alcohol is volatilized.
The warm, humid environment of the gloves is an ideal place for microbial reproduction. Different brands of gloves have different materials and the probability of cracking is different. For example, vinyl gloves are more likely to tear than latex, and another threat is that long nails or rings greatly increase the puncture gloves. Bacteria can spread even in tiny holes or through sweat. Harmful bacteria that spread from nails and jewelry are more concentrated than direct hands. Put on the gloves and repeat the timed disinfection. How many manufacturers can do it?
From the above argumentation, we can get a very good conclusion: while improving the work efficiency, the hand sterilizer also avoids the secondary pollution before and after disinfection, and achieves the effect of quickly killing the bacteria in the hand. Even better gloves are not likely to replace regular and thorough hand washing.
