Peppermill Casino Chooses Handwashing For Life’s New Pledge & Verify Framework

Handwashing and temperature control are the two mega-pillars of food safety both at home and away-from-home. At the Peppermill Casino in Reno Nevada, temperature control is on display 24/7 with the latest in Sous Vide cooking. It is the poster child for process control.


Handwashing in most all restaurants falls well short of being a controlled process. Executive Chef Mark Lund set out on a mission to change that by harnessing handwashing with decision-making data, something that matches up well with his Sous Vide process and well-developed HACCP plan.

Chef Mark identified a badge-free alternative that met his standards for accuracy and simplified reporting at a price point well below previously studied options. It is the first system to match up with the Handwashing For Life Pledge & Verify framework. This execution is a joint development by GOJO Industries who supplies the data-capturing soap dispenser and Cloud Clean who fill the data-processing and reporting requirements. Handwashing For Life provides a supporting suite of behavior changing instruments to facilitate effective implementation:

1.) The Core Handwash, standardizing the protocol, http://handwashingforlife.com/handsonsystem/serveready-hands/training/core-handwash
2.) ProGrade - the quality measurement of Professional Grade handwashing, http://handwashingforlife.com/handsonsystem/serveready-hands/training
