Food safety is an essential part of any food service or retail operation. Understanding the risks and ways to prevent foodborne illness will protect customers and businesses from harm. The person-in-charge of a food service or retail establishment must know how and what food safety practices to monitor. This manual is written to provide the person-in-charge of a food service or retail establishment the knowledge and skills that they will need to keep food safe. Learning and applying food safety practices protects customers and businesses. This course is designed for every food service or retail operation. The manual is divided into three sections: Section 1 – Foundations of Food Safety: The person-in-charge will study an overview of the regulations, food safety basics, microorganisms, and core food safety features. This section will build the foundation that a person-in-charge will need in order to apply food safety practices. Section 2 – Addressing the Five CDC Risk Factors: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified the five most common causes of foodborne illness. The person-in-charge will learn how to address these issues and control these risk factors in order to be able to serve and sell safe food in their operation. Section 3 – Proactive Food Safety System: Once a food safety foundation is built and the risk factors have been addressed, a food safety management system can be applied. Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a proactive system that assesses the food safety hazards in an operation and identifies ways to prevent, eliminate, or reduce each hazard to a safe level. The person-in-charge will learn to apply the seven HACCP principles in their operation. Upon completion of the SURE Food Safety Manager Manual, participants will have the knowledge to safely serve and sell food to their customers. Participants will also be prepared to take an ANSI-accredited Food Protection Manager Examination.
