Check out the rules of when and how to wash hands on page 7 and 8 of the Newfoundland and Labrador Health and Safety Manual "Standards and Guidelines for Health in Child Care Settings(2005)" taken directly from "Well Beings: A Guide to Promote the Physical Health, Safety and Emotional Well-Being of Children in Child Care Centres and Family Child Care Homes" by the Canadian Pediatric Society.
