First week of National Food Safety Month focuses on personal hygiene

The National Restaurant Association (NRA) provides free, weekly training materials for restaurant employees as part of its National Food Safety Month (NFSM) campaign this September. The training sessions, designed to be completed in 10 minutes, focus on key issues tied to this year's "Be Safe, Don't Cross-Contaminate" theme.

All NFSM training materials are available in English and Spanish.

NFSM highlights components of the NRA’s ServSafe® Food Safety program – the leading source of food safety training and certification for restaurant and foodservice industry professionals for nearly 40 years, with more than 5 million certifications issued. Because ServSafe is developed by the NRA, proceeds go toward helping improve the foodservice industry through research and education.

This year’s NFSM is sponsored by SCA, a global hygiene company and makers of the Tork® brand away-from-home paper products.
