What are the regulations in relation to personal hygiene when working in the food processing, storage, distribution and handling areas?

A:

All people entering food processing, storage, distribution and handling areas have an appropriate degree of personal cleanliness and take the appropriate precautions to prevent the contamination of food and food contact surfaces.

Employees in processing areas should wear effective hair restraints, such as hair nets.  There can be no requirement for Sikh workers to remove their turbans or be clean shaven.  Hair and beard nets will be sufficient to eliminate any risk of contamination.
