Are You “Employee Health” Compliant?

kill-germs-hand-washingIn one trip to the restroom, a food worker infected with Norovirus may shed up to 1 trillion viral particles in 1 gram of stool; yet, it only takes as few as 10 viral particles to spread Norovirus to someone else. This is one of the reasons why Employee Health is an important part of food safety and illness prevention and is emphasized in our Rules and Regulations for Food Service [511-6-1-.03(4) ].  The new Rules and Regulations require that food service owners and operators be able to provide proof that they have informed conditional and established food workers of the reporting requirements associated with their personal health.  You may access documents to assist you with your Employee Health Policy compliance at the Food Service FAQs located here.
