A foodborne illness outbreak can severely damage a restaurant's reputation and profits, and leave the restaurant owner liable for lawsuits. Handwashing is a simple and effective way to prevent the spread of foodborne illness in a restaurant. Employees should wash their hands after:
  • Using the bathroom
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Eating
