NFSEM provides free training on food handling, glove use

Handling food is an important part of food safety education. The National Restaurant Association's National Food Safety Education Month is focusing on just that in its second week of free training activities.

NFSEM week2.pngThe 10-minute in-store activity sheet, available for download at www.ServSafe.com/NFSEM, includes things that health inspectors watch for when it comes to employees handling food. It teaches employees to avoid touching their bodies and then touching food, and how to use gloves correctly. For example, to wash hands immediately after scratching or sneezing, and to throw away gloves after completing a task.

The training sheet then asks employees to correctly identify the correct way to handle food and use gloves in a series of images. The NFSEM materials also include a printable poster for kitchens and staff areas.

All NFSEM training materials are based on the National Restaurant Association's ServSafe program. This year's NFSEM is sponsored by SCA, a global hygiene company and makers of the Tork brand of away-from-home paper products.
