Hi, Felix Bazgan here to discuss one of the most important aspects of food safety: hand-washing. Hand-washing in the single most effect means of preventing the spread of bacteria and viruses which can cause infections and foodborne illness. A few instances where hand-washing should take place are: before starting to work with food, utensils, or equipment; during food preparation as need; when switching between raw foods and ready-to-eat-foods; after handling soiled utensils and equipment; and of course after coughing, sneezing, eating, drinking, or using the restroom.

In a typical commercial kitchen, this should be standard practice. However, what happens when you are catering off site, or prepping and serving meals at a location without running water or electricity? Here's where the Cambro hand-wash station is the perfect solution. This hand wash station sets up quickly and easily in any environment and uses something most of you already have: the Cambro camtainer.

There are four components to the hand wash station. First, you'll need a two-and-a-half gallon or five-gallon camtainer, or ultra-camtainer. Next, the hand-washer accessory, which easily attaches to the camtainer, and using "hand-wash only" labels and easy-serve dispenser, turns a camtainer from a beverage dispenser to a convenient and economical way to meet health department hand-washing requirements.

The Velcro strap quickly and easily secures the hand-wash accessory to the camtainer. The third component is a camtainer riser, which increases the use of the hand-wash station. Finally, the Cambro five-and-a-half gallon pail makes for a safe disposal of waste water. The two hand-wash models Cambro offers both have a soap dispenser and are available with a paper towel roll holder or multi-fold paper towel dispenser.
