Food safety is in the news and on the minds of many people. Numerous foodborne illnesses have occurred in Nebraska during the last year. Most of the reported foodborne illness outbreaks have occurred from food eaten away from the home. The ServSafe® Food Safety Program is developed by the National Restaurant Association to address the growing food safety concerns of consumers for the food service staff that serve them.
ServSafe® Manager is a nationally recognized food safety training and certification program established by the National Restaurant Association. This training provides the latest science-based information on food safety and best practices in the industry. This course is designed for food service managers and supervisory staff in restaurants, hospitals, schools, long-term care facilities and other food-handling establishments.
ServSafe® Food Handler is a basic food safety class for entry level food service workers. The class consists of five sections: Basic Food Safety, Personal Hygiene, Cross-Contamination and Allergens, Time and Temperature, and Cleaning and Sanitation. At the end of the class a short test will be given, and you will leave with your certificate. The certification is good in Nebraska for two years.
