Food Preparation Worker Safety Training

A food preparation worker is responsible for a lot more than making sure something is delicious. Handling food products all day that are meant for others to consume means that they are susceptible to many potential illnesses, and have to stay healthy themselves to protect others. Below, you’ll find a list of training topics that are required for most Food Preparation Workers.
