Hand Wash Sinks
Hygiene is of the upmost importance in any commercial kitchen. This is both for the obvious reason of wanting to prepare food to the highest possible standards but also to comply with legislation regarding health and safety in the workplace. All of which means that washing hands is of special importance and any commercial kitchen needs to have hand washing sinks.
Of course, as a kitchen you will have pot wash sinks and multi-purpose sinks for food prep, but it remains a good idea to keep your hand wash sinks separate. Employees of all kinds will be required to wash hands regularly before, during and after service. So, you need to have hand wash sinks in a separate area. Hand wash sinks can be small and compact but need to be large enough to allow for a thorough wash.
Ideally, hand wash sinks should also come with special taps to allow for turning the water on and off with minimal contact. Lever taps are a good idea as they can be operated without the need for hand contact. Foot and knee operated taps can also be a good option. That’s why as well as our range of hand wash sinks and basins, we also stock a range of suitable taps for hand washing.
Hand wash sinks can be wall mounted, pedestal or free standing. This allows for greater flexibility in your kitchen and prep space. You can create dedicated hand washing stations with separate soap and drying apparatus to help prevent any cross contamination with kitchen equipment. Hands-free stations are particularly useful for this.
Hand washing should form a big part of your overall kitchen hygiene strategy, with staff encouraged to wash hands at regular intervals and after certain tasks. With dedicated hand wash sinks and stations, and a good hand washing policy, you can help to keep your kitchen in the best possible condition and compliant with all the necessary legislation. Check out our range of hand wash sinks and accessories and you’ll find everything you need to make it happen.
