This past summer, we’ve talked a lot about food safety and inspections. It’s a subject that is not taken lightly in the foodservice industry, especially as a manager, supervisor, or anyone in a more prominent position. As someone who has previously worked in the industry herself, I’ve seen first hand how easy it is for those who are more likely to handle the food not take food safety seriously. Ironic isn’t it? Those who are more likely to sit at a desk are more likely to change their single-use gloves, or even use them at all.
I am not saying this to call anyone out by any means. I am, however, being realistic by acknowledging that not everyone is as motivated to demonstrate proper food handling procedures as we would like them to be. That is why I have come up with a list of ways for you to inspire your staff to want to follow these procedures.
