HACCP is comprised of 7 principles that are the core of the application process of HACCP to a food safety program.
The top 3 causes of foodborne illness attributed to food preparation and service handlers are: poor personal hygiene, improper holding temperatures, and improper cooling procedures.
Since the majority of foodborne illnesses are attributed to food service handlers, the importance of creating a HACCP system is critical.
Accredited by the International HACCP Alliance, this course aims to teach you the importance and use of all 7 principles in order to make you a safer, more effective food service employee.
Every operation serving or selling food needs to have a food safety system in place that is designed specifically to guarantee the food being served is safe to eat. This specific food safety system is called HACCP for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point. HACCP is a system comprised of 7 principles that are to be applied to a written food safety program focusing on the food in your operation.
This course meets the regulatory requirement of compliance with the 2013 FDA Food Code and the USDA Requirements for School District HACCP Plan Implementation.
