For any foodservice operation to manage its risk effectively, managers must learn basic food safety principles, apply that information on the job every day, and pass a Conference for Food Protection/ American National Standards Institute (CFP/ANSI)-approved examination. NEHA's Professional Food Manager, Fourth Edition supplies culinary and hospitality professionals and students with the knowledge to pass the CFP/ANSI-approved exam while helping to ensure the continued successful execution of food safety best practices in the workplace.

Building on the success of previous editions, the new Fourth Edition is written in an easy-to-read style that prepares current and soon-to-be managers for the many food safety challenges encountered in the workplace. Updated to the 2013 FDA Food Code, the book provides vital information on topics such as the key principles of food safety management and how to use these principles to create a food safety culture. It also provides information on how to identify and avoid different contaminants; how to prevent time-temperature abuse and cross contamination; the importance of cleaning and sanitizing, with guidelines for each; latest information on reportable diseases; guidelines to follow before, during, and after an inspection; and a new appendix that includes Food Code Employee Health Charts.
