  1. Take a rest take a nap he need to pay he will get fire did not wash his clothes he this not have a clean clothes

  2. He
    was supposed to turn water off with paper towel

    1. yes

  3. This video is bad

  4. and he is still wearing that filthy, germ infested wristwatch .. this video is dumb.

    1. +TheKvack Thank you for the feedback – you make a valid point about the watch. If or when we are able to refilm these videos in the future, this is something to consider.

  5. Thanks for noticing that. We didn’t notice this problem until the video was already in production. You are absolutely right, his watch and ring should be removed before handwashing. Unfortunately we didn’t have the resouces to re-shoot the scene. Should we ever find the time and money to re-do this series of videos we will certainly make sure the next hand model is washing his hands correctly.
    Thanks for viewing our videos.

  6. really excellent

  7. missed that paper towel on the first grab attempt, coming back the other way and GOT IT! nice work hand wash man

  8. Thankz a lot of thiz vedio

  9. did they change the temperature danger zone to 40-140?

  10. We hope the videos help those working in the food service industry to understand how important handwashing is. One should always err on the side of washing hands more often than less, even if you’re wearing gloves. In our state food service workers cannot handle ready-to-eat foods with bare hands. We believe this has reduced the incidence of foodborne illness. In other words, we all win!
    Thanks for your comments.

  11. I never knew how many times you should wach your hands. I only wash my hands when I go to the tiolet, made contact with animals, getting my hands dirty or when my finger get greasy when I touch my face.

    Thanks for your comments. Yes, we realized after we produced the videos that there were a couple little things we missed – like turning the water off with hands instead of a towel, and the chef is also wearing a ring. Whoops! Still, we feel the main thrust of the message is handwashing, and that still comes across pretty well.
    Thanks for watching and please share the link to these videos with others.

  13. lack of food safety can also result in lawsuits from patron who have fallen ill from the food. 🙁

  14. Thanks for commenting on our video. It is sad that sometimes the system works agains the better interests of public health. We’re glad to hear that you, at least, are taking food safety seriously. Keep up the good work and share the links to these videos with others.
    Thanks, Dave

  15. Yes, technically you are correct. We realized this after the production was completed, but rather than go through the expense of re-shooting everything opted to leave the segment in, hoping that simply encouraging food handlers to wash their hands would eliminate most of the problems. The glass is more than half-full.
    Thanks for viewing our videos and please share them with others.

  16. No, that’s my friend and co-worker Chad Waters.
    Thanks for asking though!
    Dave

  17. Not exactly sure what you’re asking. Please clarify for me.
    Thanks,
    Dave

  18. ..ya..sometimes..they are…but not all maybe.. ^_^

  19. You know it!
    Dave

  20. Wrists, ring, watch. Hmm. What do you think?
