There are millions of germs that are present on the human hand. These germs include bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It is believed that about 50,000 bacteria per square inch inhabit the hand.
Most food handling operations involve the use of bare hands particularly the fingertips. Microbial contamination of fingertips is therefore higher than in other parts of the hands. According to Dr. Pete Snyder, a world renowned food safety guru, the key to remove germs from soiled hand is proper handwashing. Therefore, it is important for food handlers to exercise proper handwashing in order to avoid possible contamination brought about by unclean hands.
