The most successful foodservice operations have learned the value of teammanship.
Helping kitchen teams self-monitor their handwashing rates motivates enhanced behaviors. These two team options collect actual handwashing counts at all the non-restroom handsinks via an electonically enabled soap dispenser such as GOJO's SmartLink which connects to a variety of data processing and reporting technologies. The dispenser numbers are gathered wirelessly, time-stamped by location, totaled, and then divided by the number of employee hours to yield a Handwashes per Employee Hour rate, HW/EH. Tailored reporting can also provide handwashes per handsink, per hour, per unit or per meal served. This can be extended to compare different restaurant locations and be rolled up for an enterprise view.
These systems are simple and non-intrusive on emloyee time. Managers can finally have objective information to assist in their leadership role without being forced to assume the attitude of the handwashing police. The system can be paperless by posting the running numbers on monitors positioned in the staff's workflow. This HACCP-friendly feature keeps the workers informed and engaged, being the first ones to know when corrective actions are required.

Clean Hands LLC It should be noted this option is covered primarily as an Indidual Tracking/Motivating system but can be adapted to report on a Team basis, provided the order size and commensurate development time are acceptable.
