HYGIENE AND SANITATION WHY IS HYGIENE AND SANITATION IMPORTANT? Man is a natural carrier of microorganisms. These are expelled when we SNEEZE (BUMAHIN ) COUGH (UMUBO) YAWN (HUMIKAB ) TALK (NAGSALITA )
MICROORGANISMS ARE IN MANS HAIR, SKIN, INTESTINES, URINE, UNDERNEATH FINGERNAILS. We collect more microorganisms as we travel from home to our destination due to dust, smoke generated by vehicles and contact with dirty items. It is therefore important that we observe good hygiene and sanitation to avoid contamination of products we handle.
PLANT UNIFORM Cover street clothes that contain contaminants, organisms you collect on your way to the plant. Cover your exposed skin which sheds particles with germs.
Cover the nose and mouth which are natural reservoir of germs. Trap particles or droplets from the nose and mouth. Cover your hair which have dust & germs. Prevent hair from falling into the product.
Cover finger nails and hands which have germs. Street shoes contain germs from the soil and dirt we stepped on, so it must not be worn inside the plant, plant shoes must be used instead.
WHY USE RUBBER GLOVES??? It prevents microorganism transfer from our hands to the product we handle. It prevents transfer of product dust to our hands.
It is porous and will not prevent transfer of microorganisms and perspiration to the product we handle. It permits transfer of product dust to our hands. WHY CANT WE USE COTTON GLOVES???
