Through training, food handlers gain important knowledge and skills that not only protect the public, themselves and their families from illness but also prepare them to take advantage of opportunities for thousands of jobs available in the foodservice industry. Employers who are hiring staff see well-trained food handlers as more desirable and more valuable employees.
Foodborne illness is caused by consuming food or drink that is contaminated with germs. Perhaps the food was not fully cooked or left out at room temperature. Perhaps someone who handled the food was sick or had germs on their hands. Even the simplest errors in food handling can cause someone to get a foodborne illness, and when this happens to two or more people, it is called a foodborne outbreak.
Educating food handlers is the best way to protect the public, food handlers themselves, and their families. Properly trained food handlers can improve food safety and reduce risks and behaviors commonly associated with foodborne illness and outbreaks.
It’s mission-critical to ensure every member of your food & beverage staff understands what they must do to handle and prepare food safely. One food safety incident can destroy a business, so food safety training is vital. Here’s how ServSafe® Food Handler training helps you achieve that objective.
