Help us celebrate National Food Safety Month in September by connecting your members to these great resources: In our ongoing commitment to food safety, ServSafe is proud to announce this year’s National Food Safety Month (NFSM) theme, “Controlling Risk: The Elements of a Food Safety Management System.” We hope your association will celebrate with us throughout September by passing these resources along to your members, as we explore how managers and employees can work together to develop and implement strong Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS) at their operation.
Having a solid FSMS in place can provide a framework for an operation’s entire team to know and implement practices that keep guests, employees, and the business safe. While management designs and implements the FSMS, employees must understand and carry out its policies and procedures. Their role is key to making sure the FSMS works the way it should.
We’ve provided weekly activity sheets, posters, and infographics on www.foodsafetyfocus.com for you to pass along to your members for them to share with their employees. They can also be found in the NFSM section of Brandfolder as well. These assets are designed to help managers and employees work together to ensure food safety throughout their operation. Weekly themes are:
• Week 1 (9/3): Understand the Process
• Week 2 (9/9): Provide Input
• Week 3 (9/16): Refine the Process
• Week 4 (9/23): Maintain Your Commitment
This year’s NFSM sponsor is Tork, an Essity brand. The Tork brand offers professional hygiene products and services to customers ranging from restaurants and healthcare facilities to offices, schools and industries.
