(Chicago) – National Restaurant Association has launched ServSafe Starters Employee Online Course at www.ServSafe.com/Starters. Designed for employee-level restaurant and foodservice workers, the ServSafe Starters online training program delivers core food safety training consistently and helps ensure that food is handled safely throughout the operation.
“Food safety is a number one priority for the NRA and our members so we are pleased to introduce this newest addition to our ServSafe family of products. ServSafe Starters Employee Online Program will allow more foodservice professionals to have access to this important training and stay abreast of the most recent developments in safe food handling. Created by the restaurant and foodservice industry, this program — with its convenient online format — is a solution to minimize training costs while keeping businesses and customers safe,” said David Gilbert, acting executive vice president, products & services, National Restaurant Association Solutions.
“In addition, operators have told us that documentation of training is critical, so the new ServSafe Starters online program has an online tracking capability. It allows the employee’s progress and status to be viewed online and recorded.”
