    Food handlers should maintain a high degree of personal cleanliness and, where appropriate, wear suitable protective clothing, head covering, and footwear. Cuts and wounds, where personnel are permitted to continue working, should be covered by suitable waterproof dressings.

    Personnel should always wash their hands when personal cleanliness may affect food safety, for example:

    - at the start of food handling activities;

    - immediately after using the toilet; and

    - after handling raw food or any contaminated material, where this could result in contamination of other food items; they should avoid handling ready-to-eat food, where appropriate.


    People engaged in food handling activities should refrain from behaviour which could result in contamination of food, for example:

    - smoking;

    - spitting;

    - chewing or eating;

    - sneezing or coughing over unprotected food.

    Personal effects such as jewellery, watches, pins or other items should not be worn or brought into food handling areas if they pose a threat to the safety and suitability of food.

A TORFAEN takeaway was fined for a series of food hygiene breaches.

Newport magistrate's court heard that food handlers at Naseeb Tandoori take-away in Broad Street, Blaenavon, did not display a high degree of personal hygiene, including not wearing suitable protective over-clothing, staff licking their fingers during food handling and not using soap to thoroughly wash their hands.

Foods were not being chilled, and staff were not disinfecting worktops.

Sajjad Ali admitted the offences and was fined £375 with £220 costs.
