Why learn sanitation

Several Kentucky districts require that a “certified food handler” be on the premises at all times; but let’s face it, the consequences of a simple, tragic mistake by an employee could be catastrophic. The prevention of foodborne illness can be achieved by learning and practicing a set of rules and procedures and making sure that you teach these to your foodhandlers, and insist that they practice them too! This seminar will teach you the rules, show you the best way to train your foodhandlers, how to recognize hazardous situations and how to apply the rules for sanitary foodservice to your daily routines.
