|WHO NEEDS A FOOD HANDLER'S PERMIT?
Anyone working in the food industry, whether you’re a dishwasher or server, you need this permit. The Food Handlers class teaches basic food handling skills, temperature control for food items, cross contamination, and personal hygiene when handling food.
Food service permits are required before
employment for all employees who work with
food or in food establishments, day cares, nursing
homes, hospitals and food manufacturing plants (including
those involved in making vitamins).
It is the responsibility of management to
check to see if employees have current permits
or that new hires have permits before placing
them on a work schedule. It is the employees
responsibility to acquire the permit.
