Composting is a natural biochemical process involving bacteria and fungi. Humans have been composting for thousands of years. A review of published H&S advice is covered within this Q&A, in summary: Always wear gloves, cover cuts and wash hands after composting. Do not leave kitchen caddy, gloves or other compost equipment on or near food preparation surfaces. If you suffer from asthma, related respiratory conditions or compromised immune system, take specific precautions to avoid inhalation of dusts (eg wear a dusk mask). The maximum temperature the HotBin reaches is (75°C). This is not a scalding risk to most people, but be aware 60°C is the temperature of very hot tap water.

I have become a volunteer at Glamis Castle Walled Garden Restoration Project and compost bins have been made in the kitchen garden .

I shall post a photo later and keep you informed how our compost progresses.

We will be planting kitchen herbs and veggies to also help the Caste Kitchen.

Some good points.
I'd have a tough time putting on gloves to handle the compost.
I'm using my done compost in all the garden & GH beds.
My hands are constantly in the soil (dirt). :)
