Biosecurity – Hand sanitzation and cleaning zones

Action Point: To have hand sanitizer in each area of the barn where there are stalls in use, at the main entrance to the barn, in the feed room and in the area that will be used for quarantine/isolation. To set up a small area near the indoor water source for hand cleaning. Somewhere to keep soap and paper towels to help with keeping hands clean.

Location: Inside Barn

Rationale: Infectious diseases can be spread through contact. When handling a combination of sick and healthy horses it is important to keep your hands as clean as possible to minimize risk. “Of all the possible measures that can be taken to reduce nosocomial and zoonotic infection, hand hygiene is perhaps the most important, easiest to use, most cost-effective, and most underused measure” (Weese, J Scott. 2004).
