The most significant source of contamination is from hands. No amount of cleansers or automated machinery will ever replace the careful washing of hands by a food preparation or food handling worker. So, the key is awareness and training. Our training kits drive the point home and are effective. Apply "germ lotion'' to hands, then wash. The U/V lamp will make unwashed areas glow in a darkened room. These kits also include "germ powder'' for cross-contamination training. We offer several hand wash training kits that allow managers to show workers how to wash properly in a dramatic and memorable demonstration. click here for more information.
The foodservice and hospitality industry are investing in kiosks as a way to increase their overall operational efficiency. This trend is indicative of the foodservice organization's need for more rapidly deployable applications. Currently, operators can use the kiosk in a variety of ways, including order processing, product information, lead-through ordering, customer service interaction and payment processing, to name a few. Foodservice operators are also beginning to find that they can use these same touch-screen kiosks as a means to deliver CBT (computer-based training) modules to their employees. The modules, covering topics from food safety to sexual harassment to specialized corporate standards, already exist within the marketplace as fully developed, easy to integrate web-based training applications. Therefore this trend, of delivering existing CBT through kiosks and even POS systems, unlocks a windfall of potential licensing revenue for kiosk hardware and software providers alike.

New technology is allowing restaurants to maintain food safety and ensure employee cleanliness.
When Claim Jumper restaurants, a chain of sit-down family eateries based in Irvine, California, decided they wanted to upgrade how they monitored the safety of their food, they took an expensive and high-tech step to the next level.Ted Stathakis, vice president of technology of the chain, said their decision to switch from the inexpensive pen, paper, and clipboard to checking on health standards with a wireless personal data assistant and special software was a “no-brainier.”
That software, ParTech Inc.’s iQuality, allows chain restaurants, as well as independent restaurants, to monitor a wide variety of food safety and restaurant-sanitation items via a digital checklist on an Internet-connected PDA device built by Tripod Data Systems and software company Par Tech inc.
