1.5 Explain the importance of clearing and disposing of food waste promptly and safety.
Weegy: Food waste must be disposed of on a regular basis. This prevents any build up of potentially harmful bacteria. This helps to prevent cross contamination.

2.2 Explain effective hand-washing for handling food and drink
Weegy: Is it important to wash your hands? Simply put, yes. Hand washing is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of infections. [ You can spread certain "germs" (a general term for microbes like viruses and bacteria) casually by touching another person. You can also catch germs when you touch contaminated objects or surfaces and then you touch your face (mouth, eyes, and nose). "Good" hand washing techniques include using an adequate amount of soap, rubbing the hands together to create friction, and rinsing under running water. The use of gloves is not a substitute for hand washing. There is additional information in OSH Answers about how the common cold is transmitted by contaminated hands. Also see Influenza and Pandemic Influenza. Other steps that can be taken to reduce the spread of infections are discussed in the OSH Answers document Good Hygiene Practices - Reducing the Spread of Infections and Viruses. Please note: In some workplaces, universal precautions should be followed when workers are exposed to blood and certain other body fluids. Please see the OSH Answers document Routine Practices for more complete information. read more : ] (More)
