There are a lot of important bases to cover in the food training that you provide to your restaurant and food service workers. Most of the topics are not merely “nice to have,” but imperative. At the same time, you need to provide training for a reasonable cost. And there is another factor to consider too – you need training that is flexible enough to let you train for your specific requirements, like the necessity of preparing employees to obtain local certifications. Another consideration? You may need to train employees whose primary language is Spanish, or who will work in settings where both Spanish and English are spoken.

Why is Food Safety Important?
Once upon a time in America, most restaurants were pretty similar. Diners entered, sat down at tables and placed orders with waiters. Cooks prepared food in the kitchen, then waiters delivered food to the tables. There were variations on that model, of course. Some restaurants that had bars. There were Chinese restaurants, upscale French restaurants that had wine stewards and renowned chefs who prepared the entrees. But fundamentally, a restaurant was a restaurant, and everybody knew what that meant and how they worked. Today, Americans want to order and consume food just about everywhere they go – in health clubs, hotels, highway rest stops, shopping malls. The result? A growing need for well-trained food service employees who are able to provide good customer service, prepare and store foods safely, and take steps to prevent food contamination.
Food hazards and improper activities cause foodborne illnesses — like food poisoning – to take place. These illnesses are completely preventable, especially when workers are well-informed on food safety procedures. But how do you learn about the do’s and don’ts of working in the restaurant industry? Through certification training! Quickly learn the techniques you need to know to ensure proper food safety with the FSAI Food Handler Training Program.
