It is the responsibility of all Food Handlers of commercial foods to maintain a high level of personal hygiene, including keeping the nails short and clean.

? Why nails must be short? I LOVE MY NICELY MANICURED NAILS.

Did you know that when your nails are kept longer, the GERMS & DIRTS can be hidden under your nails? IT Increase the risk of you causing food poisoning caused by the foods you sell.

?‍? Eh Cikgu, GLOVES can hide the long nails right?

Actually, you can create small cuts on your gloves when your nails are too long. You may not see it, but the cuts can be a very small size / MICRO CUT, plus the germs are very timy, too, and can just jump from your nails to your food just like that.


Under the Food Hygiene Regulations 2009, Regulation 33, your long nails may cause you to be COMPOUNDED up to RM10,000.00 or to be IMPRISONED up to two (2) year. (It is what’s written there, I kid you not.)

?✨ It is advisable to have your nail clipper with you at all times. Ensure your nails are short and clean always to maintain Food Hygiene as a Food Handler ?? ?‍??‍?✨
