Educating Your Employees on Food Safety

Why You Should Invest in Your Employees for the Good of Your Business

In the food industry, the quality of the product and the safety of the individuals consuming it relies heavily on the production process. Every single step of the production process is a large liability and needs to be carried out correctly. If a consumer is harmed by a food product, the company that produced the product can be held liable for their sickness, injury or death. These types of liabilities can not only cost the company a large sum of money, they can also tarnish a company’s reputation forever. For this reason, food production companies should be investing time and funding into educating their employees on the importance of their job and how to carry it out correctly.

The quality of food relies heavily on the preventive controls a company has in place for sanitation, allergens, supply chain, and processes. Even when there are well-defined processes for these controls, issues and occurrences can fall through the cracks due to the lack of an employee’s knowledge concerning the importance of the controls. It is proven that when an employee understands the importance of and reason behind a control, they are more intentional in carrying it out correctly. Therefore, providing employees with training on the importance of preventive controls is imperative to companies’ success. 

As a training company, Safe Food Resources understands the importance of tailoring a class to its specific students. Often times, training courses leave employees feeling bored because they are too basic or confused and frustrated because they are too advanced. When a company chooses to train their employees through Safe Food Resources, the employees’ knowledge is evaluated and the classes are designed to meet them where they are, building off of their existing knowledge. Due to Safe Food Resources unique approach to education, employees leave the classes feeling more knowledgeable about their responsibilities and empowered to do a thorough job.

Finding cost-effective training is a major difficulty for companies interesting in providing their employees with training. When investing into a training program, employers want to feel confident that their money is going to be well-spent and that their employees will leave the class with valuable information to bring back to the company. At Safe Food Resources, employers are able to tailor training sessions to the needs of their company. The courses offered are designed to be taken one at a time, with one class offered every month focusing on specific in depth learning for each of the preventive controls. The combination of classes offered to by Safe Food Resources creates a culture of food safety and its importance among trained employees. If Safe Food Resources courses are taken in the manner in which they are intended, the employer is offered a significant discount. However, if a company feels that their employees will benefit from just one or two of the courses, they can design a plan that will be to their best benefit.
