Why is Food Safety Training & Certification important?

Food safety and sanitation are integral to operating a successful food service. The safety of our food supply is a responsibility shared by consumers, producers, sellers and handlers. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 76 million people fall ill, 325,000 are hospitalized and 5,000 Americans die annually from foodborne illness.

  • Food safety and sanitation are integral to operating a successful food service. The safety of our food supply is a responsibility shared by producers, sellers, managers and handlers.
  • The top 3 causes of foodborne illness attributed to food preparation and service handlers are: poor personal hygiene, improper holding temperatures, and improper cooling procedures.
  • Since the majority of foodborne illnesses are attributed to food service handlers, and the top contributing factors are related to handlers behavior, the importance of the training food handlers receive is critical.
  • Many states require certification of food managers which may include a food safety exam.
  • ANSI accreditation helps assure quality and safety of food products, systems, services, and personnel.
