CHICAGO — The National Restaurant Association encourages restaurant and foodservice operators to begin planning for the 15th annual National Food Safety Education Month, the association has announced.
  
This month-long campaign is held every September and focuses on the importance of food safety education for the restaurant and foodservice industry. This year's theme is "Food Safety Thrives When You Focus on Five."
 
As part of the month-long campaign, free weekly training activities and posters that reinforce the theme will be available for download in mid-July. Each week will focus on one of the five barriers:
  • Purchasing food from unsafe sources
  • Failing to cook food adequately
  • Holding food at incorrect temperatures
  • Using contaminated equipment
  • Practicing poor personal hygiene
The free National Food Safety Education Month materials are based on the ServSafe food safety training and certification program.
  
Managed by NRA Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of the NRA, ServSafe offers high-quality training options for every manager and employee, from classroom to online and in a variety of languages.
