ServSafe 6th Edition launches with optimized, focused content

The National Restaurant Association is rolling out the next generation of its ServSafe Food Safety manager program this month to meet the evolving needs of the restaurant and foodservice industry.

Available now, the new ServSafe Manager Book, 6th Edition (formerly ServSafe Essentials) training materials include optimized, recalibrated and focused content created by the industry, for the industry. In addition, the ServSafe.com website has been redesigned to ease navigation by multiple audiences and reflect the improvements in the 6th Edition.

“Food safety best practices are ever-evolving, and as the restaurant and foodservice industry’s leading provider of food safety training and certification, we are evolving with them,” said Paul Hineman, executive director of National Restaurant Association Solutions.

“This new and improved version of our ServSafe program is – as it always has been – the result of industry collaboration to enhance usability, information flow, and knowledge retention. Restaurant managers training with ServSafe will have a whole new learning experience that translates into everyday food safety practices in any foodservice operation,” he said.

The new ServSafe 6th Edition contains the latest FDA Food Code updates and is based on a new job task analysis developed exclusively by restaurant operators across segments, academic bodies and regulatory experts for real-life situations. The new edition focuses more intently on the preventative measures to keep food safe, leading to stronger food safety practices and a better trained workforce.

“ServSafe really is unlike any other food safety training program in the market today because of its source. As the industry’s leading business association, the National Restaurant Association is invested in programs and events that help the restaurant industry succeed, as opposed to benefitting shareholders or private investors,” Hineman said.

Certified ServSafe Instructors may access several free tools and resources available on the Instructor Tools page on the new ServSafe.com website for seamless transition to the new training materials. ServSafe 6th Edition will also be showcased at the 2012 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show (May 5-8 at Chicago’s McCormick Place) in the Association’s booth #6600, as well as the ServSafe booth #6867.
