How to get the right level of Gowning everywhere

Many people will understand that gowning is important for working in cleanrooms. But WHAT about gowning in a Medium Care zone or a Low Care zone or else in your facility? WHAT rules should you implement? HOW can you convince your colleagues that gowning is important? Are you happy with the gowning rules that are implemented? Are they working as they should?


The Importance of Personal Hygiene

Food safety has a big impact on the world. In this infographic from the World Health Organization we see that every year almost 1 in 10 people fall ill due to a food borne disease. In total this amounts to 33 million healthy life years being lost where people cannot work, go to school or truly enjoy their life.

Unfortunately also a lot of people die as a result of these food borne illnesses. That number is estimated at 420 thousand people per year. And even worse, one third of this so 140 thousand of them are children.

This shows the importance of food safety and it is up to us who work in the food industry to do everything we can to prevent food borne illnesses.


Gowning and the Importance of Personal Hygiene

There are various aspects which are important in gowning.

The first things you need to consider are:

  • What kind of CLOTHES do you need
  • What kind of SHOES are you introducing
  • Where will you introduce HAIR NETS / BEARD NETS
  • Where will you introduce FACE MASKS
  • Is it really necessary to use GLOVES
  • What are the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that you need to introduce

And how is this connected with your Zoning?
