Are we required to wear gloves when handling food?

It is not a legal requirement to wear gloves whilst handling food.

It is not a requirement to wear gloves whilst handling food. However it is a good practice to use gloves to protect food. It is important to wash hands before putting your gloves on.

Change your gloves on a regular basis, or as soon as they get dirty.

Never re-use gloves.

If gloves are not worn utensils should be used to handle and serve food and hands must be kept clean, wounds must be covered and jewellery and false nails should not be worn.
