Reduce the Spread of Germs

MAY

2020

Every year, about 48 million Americans get sick from eating contaminated food, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Recent norovirus outbreaks have brought renewed focus on hygiene and handwashing in foodservice kitchens.

The spread of germs from food workers’ hands accounts for 89 percent of outbreaks in which food was contaminated by food workers, reports the Environmental Health Specialists Network, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Safe, thorough handwashing is one of the easiest, most effective tools against food contamination.

Many experts recommend using paper towels to turn off faucets after washing to prevent recontamination, but there’s an easier way — hands-free sensor faucets.

Sensor faucets use beams of infrared light to activate water flow, keeping hands that may be contaminated by handling raw foods or garbage from touching the faucet.

T&S Brass’ ChekPoint™ faucets offer the convenience and hygiene benefits of hands-free washing while also saving foodservice operators resources and money.

The installation of electronic sensor faucets is one of the fastest-growing conservation efforts in foodservice. Sensor faucets save about a gallon of water per hand wash, which also reduces the energy needed to heat the water.

Faucets are available with AC/DC power and hydro-generator options, ensuring they’ll be reliably available in any situation. And ChekPoint™ faucets feature an all-metal design and heavy-duty construction and come with T&S’ legendary reliability.
