How does getting food safety training protect public health?
Holding food manager certification, or a handler card means you understand exactly what’s required to prepare and serve food to the public. Outbreaks from contaminated food are very serious, and have major consequences ranging from serious illness or death, to fines and other legal problems.
When proper procedures aren’t followed, it’s possible that food could become contaminated with foodborne illness. The effects can even lead to death in some cases. That’s why Florida law requires that employees are trained to work with food safely.
When you are trained with Responsible Training’s online food handler program, you’ll know the food you are serving is safe as well as delicious.
