What is sanitation?

Sanitation essentially refers to the procedures involved in keeping a space clean and safe to use. However, the world today faces a sanitation crisis, as more than half of its population does not have access to proper sanitation. In fact, the UN estimates that by the year 2025, there will be almost half a billion more people in urban centers. Unsurprisingly, reports have shown that the presence of sanitation services correlates with better health outcomes. Increased access to sanitation has been shown to reduce the risk of diarrhea, which is the leading cause of death in children under five. The need to improve sanitation services has never been greater. But how can we make micro changes in our operations to make our surroundings cleaner? In the restaurant industry, this includes many things such as personal hygiene, sanitized surfaces, proper storage and cleaning protocols along with ways to prevent foodborne diseases!
