Why is Utah Food Safety Training & Certification important?

Utah food safety and sanitation are integral to operating a successful food service. The safety of the food supply is a responsibility shared by consumers, producers, sellers, managers and handlers.

  • The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 76 million people fall ill, 325,000 are hospitalized and 5,000 Americans die annually from foodborne illness.
  • The top 3 causes of foodborne illness attributed to food preparation and service handlers are: poor personal hygiene, improper holding temperatures, and improper cooling procedures.
  • Since the majority of foodborne illnesses are attributed to food service handlers, and the top contributing factors are related to handlers behavior, the importance of the training food handlers receive is critical.
