They’re the first line of defense against the harmful materials that can contaminate food and make people sick. It is also their job to ensure that the food products they work with are safe to eat. That’s why safety training for food processing and handling employees is so important.
The Food Process and Handling Safety and Human Resource courses provide employees with vital information about how to prevent contamination in their facility, the regulations that are related to food-related health and how to work well together.
The courses are divided into a number of logical sections, each with its own quiz, so information is easily understood. The interactive formats allow trainers to collect employee performance information which can be organized through a powerful relational database and provides recordkeeping and tracking report capabilities.
The DVD programs contain a Presenter’s Guide, Employee Quizzes, Scheduling and Attendance Forms, and Training Certificates.
Languages: Programs are available in English and Spanish.
Formats: Web-based E-learning / DVD / Micro Learning (3-5 minute courses) / Adaptive-Learning
The Back Safety in Food Process and Handling Environments course discusses situations that can lead to back injuries and what employees can do to avoid them at work and at home.
Employees who work with food need to be committed to creating products that are safe to eat. For this reason, it is very important that they follow good cleaning procedures in their facility.
Exposure to harmful microorganisms, such as bacteria, spores, fungi and viruses, can contaminate food products during the manufacturing process. If customers eat this contaminated food, it can result in what are known as “foodborne illnesses”. However, if employees follow proper cleaning procedures, it can help to eliminate these microorganisms.
In food processing and handling facilities, it is vitally important to keep food products free from harmful microorganisms, such as bacteria, mold, spores and viruses. These can all contaminate food products and potentially cause an outbreak of foodborne illnesses.
While cleaning is an important first step in protecting food products from contamination, sanitizing is what really eliminates surfaces and equipment of harmful microorganisms to ensure that food is safe for consumption.
