Why Do I Need Safety Training?

While food is more abundant than ever before, many individuals are not receiving the quality of diet that they should. Around the world, countries are grappling with the double burden of malnutrition, where individuals consume too many calories and develop obesity-related illnesses, but still do not receive the nutrients that their bodies need to function properly. Furthermore, many illnesses can be contracted through the improper handling of food.

 As a result, knowledge of proper nutrition and safe food handling procedures are needed now more than ever before.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the meaning of food safety?

Food safety is the routine of preparing, handling, and storing food in a safe way to prevent foodborne illnesses and other health hazards.

How does food safety affect nutrition?

Nutrition is how we can maintain healthy bodies, but unsafe food can cause disease, malnutrition, and other adverse health effects. On the other hand, proper food safety promotes healthy communities and can limit food-borne diseases. You cannot get proper nutrition without food safety.

Why is nutrition and food safety important?

As we mentioned, food safety is a crucial part of nutrition, and understanding how that relationship works can help you maintain optimal health and well-being. However, food safety and nutrition is not only a personal endeavor, but one that impacts communities as well. Those who work in the hospitality industry need to understand food safety and nutrition to help maintain the health and safety of their guests and patrons.

What are the keys to food safety?

We mentioned that proper food safety can help limit the spread of food-borne disease. This is done by keeping the area clean, separating raw food and cooked food, cooking food thoroughly, and using safe water and ingredients. To emphasize further, keeping the area clean means that you wash your hands in warm water and soap for 20 seconds before and after you handle food, and washing any cutting boards, dishes, utensils, and countertops regularly with hot water and soap.
