Food Safety Education

In July 2014 the Teton Health District passed a new Rule for Food safety. This rule establishes a requirement for mandatory education for each licensed establishment beginning January 1, 2015. The Rule for Food Safety requires that each licensed establishment has at least one employee with supervisory and management responsibility who is a certified food protection manager. This person must show proficiency of required information through passing a test. Certain establishments with limited food preparation may be required to have a lesser certification or may be exempt from this requirement.

Person in Charge

In addition (as in previous Food Rules) each establishment must also always have a person in charge (PIC). If the designated PIC cannot answer basic food safety questions and/or the establishment has at least 1 critical violation the establishment will be required to have at least 1 person per shift who has taken and passed a Food Handler class.

For more information on the food safety training requirement, please reference Chapter 1 sections 9-12 of the new Food Rule (PDF).
