    Food Safety: Allergy Awareness

    As the number of people with food allergies in the U.S continues to rise, food handlers play an increasingly important role in keeping people safe by using the best practices in their workplace. Maintaining a clean work environment, preparing, and storing food correctly, and practicing good hygiene are all essential to preventing allergic reactions. In this self-directed course, you’ll learn how allergies affect the body and the eight most common food allergens. Interactive elements and learning checks throughout the course will prepare you to not only limit the transfer of allergens by handling food safely, but also respond appropriately in the event of an allergic reaction. Allergy Awareness is the second module in the Food Safety series from Maestro, an 11-course curriculum that teaches you best practices for food service. This series includes topics on foodborne illness, allergy awareness, time and temperature control, alcohol safety, HACCP and other food safety plans, recall management, hand hygiene, and cleaning and sanitizing procedures. Food Safety provides a strong foundation for food handlers and food managers, helping you establish a food safety culture based on leading food production and handling standards.
