Training – Please Step Forward If You Are the Person in Charge!

The EHS-Net of the CDC in the USA found that restaurants with kitchen managers certified in food safety were less likely to have critical violations on their inspections. They analyzed 8,338 routine inspection reports for 4,461 restaurants in Iowa. During routine inspections, inspectors checked whether restaurants met Iowa food safety rules. They used a 44-item checklist. Some items on the checklist are called critical violations. If not fixed, these items are more likely than others to cause illness or a health risk. Their results showed that restaurants with Certified kitchen managers (managers that have attended a food safety training course and passed an assessment) (CKM’s) had fewer of most types of critical violations.
