The ACAFP has partnered with SaniTimer to promote healthy hand washing practices and spread information on how proper hand washing can prevent the spread of harmful bacteria in facilities and stop disease outbreaks.
The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) has peer reviewed and published the Purdue University food safety study centered around the SaniTimer to determine whether a hand washing timer does in fact change behavior at the hand sink. In fact, the SaniTimer raised compliance rates 28.4% from an average wash time of 11.6 seconds to an average of 14.9 seconds and was far more effective at changing employee behaviors when compared to posted signage.
