Food Handlers Food Safety Training Everyone who handles food in your business needs to know how to handle it safely! Food businesses must make sure that all food handlers, and people who supervise food handlers, have the right skills and knowledge in food safety and food hygiene for the work they do. It is a legal requirement and part of your Food Safety Program. A food handler is any one in your business who has anything to do with food or a surface that is likely to come in contact with food ie. tables, fridges or chopping boards. It covers staff who manufacture, process, prepare, (such as chopping, cooking, thawing), serve, deliver, transport or package food in your business. Even staff who clean your premises and equipment. Anyone who is likely to have contact with food or a food surface can affect the safety of the food. A person who supervises food handling may not always be the Food Safety Supervisor for your business. (Read ‘Food Safety Supervisor’ fact sheet.) Staff who supervise may not handle food themselves. However, they must know how to handle food safely for all of the activities that they are supervising. What does ‘Skills’ and ‘Knowledge’ mean in Food Safety? A skill is being able to do something. It means that food handlers and their supervisors are able to do the things in their work that keep food safe. Knowledge is knowing about or understanding something. It means that food handlers and their supervisors know what must be done to keep food safe.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
