How To Ensure Hand Washing Compliance at Your Restaurant

Proper hand-washing techniques are always critical, but they’ve been thrust even further into the spotlight in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and other bodies have published best practices regarding the appropriate time and method for handwashing, such as washing before, during and after food preparation, before eating, after touching dirty or high-traffic surfaces, and more.

Scrubbing your hands for at least 20 seconds is also recommended to achieve proper cleanliness – but enforcing that length is a different matter altogether. You can post signs encouraging good hygiene and use other visual aids, but there’s no guarantee they’ll help you ensure best practices are being adhered to.

The Antunes Hand Wash Timer has served customers well for years in maintaining hygiene and safety, and it’s ready to step up now, when handwashing has become more critical than ever. With it, you can offer up a valuable handwashing tool that helps you take an additional step toward compliance with these suggested best practices in any hand-washing application.

Features of the Antunes Hand Wash Timer

The Antunes Hand Wash Timer runs on two AA batteries for up to three years, requiring no electricity and providing a lasting solution that not only helps you address the immediate effects of the spread of coronavirus, but promote lasting hygiene habits.

The Hand Wash Timer mounts to any magnetic surface and includes a 90-day warranty, giving you the flexibility and peace of mind you’ve come to expect from Antunes solutions. A mounting bracket with an adhesive agent is also included.

Its display shows a continuous 20-second countdown, providing a clear visual reminder of the recommended time for proper handwashing.

In this way, the Hand Wash Timer requires no user intervention to operate or activate and provides touchless function, helping ensure the surface, itself, isn’t contributing to the spread of germs.

Your Health Is in Your Hands

Now more than ever, it’s important to be proactive in ensuring everyone in your space is correctly adhering to best practices for handwashing.

With the Antunes Hand Wash Timer, you can do your part to prevent the spread of germs and infectious diseases like the novel coronavirus by promoting these techniques.
