If you serve or prepare food as part of your business, it is incredibly important that you are familiar with safe food handling practices.
To ensure food offered to the public is safe to consume, all owners and operators of a food premises, including those at special events, must be knowledgeable of, and comply with, Ontario Regulation 493/17: Food Premises.
It is now a requirement under s.32 of this regulation for every operator of a food service premises to ensure at least one food handler or supervisor has successfully completed certified food handler training and is on the premises during every hour in which the premises is operating.
To assist with this, we offer comprehensive food handler training courses throughout the year at all of our Hastings Prince Edward Public Health locations.
We can also provide you with several resources to post or distribute at your workplace. These include:
- Hand Washing Sign
- Food Safety Temperatures Sign
- 2-Compartment Sink Manual Dishwashing Method – Sign
- 3-Compartment Sink Manual Dishwashing Method – Sign
- Machine Dishwashing Method – Sign
