Pathogens are commonly found on the skin and in the noses of healthy people. Scratching the head and nose can result in bacteria being transferred by hands onto food, which may cause illness to customers. Smoking in food rooms may cause food contamination by cigarette ends, ashes or hands.

Several types of communicable diseases can be transmitted by consumption of food. Food handlers should eliminate the opportunity for pathogenic micro-organisms from being transferred to food and spread to consumers.

Food handlers can carry communicable diseases, especially if they themselves have been infected. Some food poisoning bacteria are commonly found on open wounds or cuts of their bodies. Illness may be spread to consumers if food handlers suffering from illness or with open wounds are allowed to take part in food activities.
