The Importance of Food Safety Training

One of the most important elements for businesses purchasing, preparing, storing, and serving food is the training of their personnel. Often the least amount of time and resource investment is made to training. However, investing in training is essential for ensuring a safe establishment.

Eating spoiled food, raw meat, poultry, or contaminated food can lead to food-borne illness, infection, and flu-like symptoms due to ingesting harmful bacteria. People with a compromised immune system are at an increased risk of sickness.

In order to engage in effective disease control and prevent food poisoning, it’s essential to learn safe food handling practices, especially around food types such as chicken, pork, eggs, turkey, ground meat, seafood, and lamb. Food safety training also reduces costs in the long run by preventing recalls, loss of contracts, audit concerns, consumer complaints, and excessive laboratory testing.

Frequently Asked Questions

The CFIA is responsible for ensuring that all food service establishments meet the required health and safety protocols. The business’s job is to ensure all food processors and handlers know and understand the importance and responsibilities of food safety. These responsibilities include ensuring food is safely cooked, using separate cutting boards, learning how to use a food thermometer to make sure food is cooked at the correct temperature and more.

To prevent food contamination, ensure that you:

  • Wash hands with hot soapy water.
  • Wash cutting boards with warm water and soap.
  • Wash dishcloths, utensils, knives and countertops frequently with soap.
  • Keep your refrigerator and freezer at the correct temperature.
  • Invest in food safety training!

Several factors can compromise food safety. Food safety can be affected anywhere in the supply chain. Making sure food is safe is vital for all food handlers and food service personnel. Food safety training ensures that safety is taken seriously and is not compromised in the workplace.

Food safety refers to ensuring that food is safe for consumption. Food hygiene is more specific to foodborne diseases and bacterial contaminants. Our Canadian Food Safety courses explain this difference in-depth and further train food service workers on both!
