Is it okay to wash your hands in the kitchen sink?

I was watching a movie the other day and the husband came into the kitchen and started to wash his hands. The wife said "Not here, this is where we prepare food." Admittedly, it was an extreme case (Dirk Bogarde had been servicing his motorbike, and no one wants bike grease in their food), but it got me thinking. What's the likelihood of contaminating food by washing your hands in the kitchen sink?
I admit, I do it occasionally and will change that if there is a compelling case.
