Kitchen Hygiene in the Home

The kitchen is a communal area of the home which is in constant use throughout the day. In particular it is the area where food is prepared.

This leaflet has been put together to provide background information on kitchen hygiene with particular reference to the home. This briefing material has been produced for healthcare professionals, the media and others who are looking for background understanding and/or are responsible for informing the public about infectious diseases in the home and their prevention through good hygiene practice.

The hygiene practice advice given in this document is taken from the IFH/IPS training resource: HOME HYGIENE – prevention of infection at home: a training resource for carers and their trainers.
