Professional Food Manager

For any foodservice operation to manage its risk effectively, managers must learn basic food safety principles, apply that information on the job every day, and pass a Conference for Food Protection/ American National Standards Institute (CFP/ANSI)-approved examination. NEHA's Professional Food Manager, Fifth Edition, supplies culinary and hospitality professionals and students with the knowledge to pass the CFP/ANSI-approved exam while helping to ensure the continued successful execution of food safety best practices in the workplace.

 

This book provides vital information on topics such as the principles of food safety management and how to use those principles to create a food safety culture. It also provides information on how to identify and avoid different contaminants; the importance of cleaning and sanitizing; latest information on reportable diseases; guidelines to follow before, during, and after an inspection; and a new chapter on HACCP.

The new fifth edition Professional Food Manager has been improved to:

  • Use instructional design practices for improved learning/retentions
  • Align with American Culinary Federation Education Foundation competencies
  • Prepare candidates for CFP-approved food manager exams (e.g., Prometric, National Registry, ServSafe, etc.)
  • Include an all-new instructor guide and companion classroom materials
  • Offer volume discounts for NEHA Food Safety Instructors
  • Conform to the 2015 FDA Food Code Supplement

 

Current and prospective managers needing food safety manager certification, as well as those who are already certified and seeking a refresher on best practices in food safety, will find Professional Food Manager, Fifth Edition to be an invaluable resource for achieving their goals and putting the outlined food safety principles to work.

Article Abstract

Growing societal interest to permit animals into retail food outlets presents both risks and benefits to the dining public and consumers. This article summarizes a literature review that evaluated the associated potential public health issues related to this subject. Using the EBSCOhost research protocol and Google search engines between March 2010 and June 2011, the authors have compiled and synthesized scientific research articles, empirical scientific literature, and publicly available news media. While pets are known carriers of bacteria and parasites, among others, the relative risk associated with specific pet-human interactions in the dining public has yet to be established in a clear and consistent manner. Much of the available health-risk-factor evidence reflects pets in domestic conditions and interaction with farm animals. Special consideration is recommended for vulnerable populations such as children, asthmatics, the elderly, pregnant women, and the immunocompromised.

In recent years nitrogen in the environment has become a nationwide concern due to the sensitivity of many water bodies to excess nitrogen loading from many different sources, including Onsite Wastewater Systems (OWS). Complimentary to the Florida Onsite Sewage Nitrogen Reduction Strategies study, the Colorado School of Mines evaluated denitrification via subsurface via a soil treatment unit (STU). This presentation will share the rates of denitrification achieved and how to substantially increase them. See how the onsite wastewater treatment system design plays a key role in the removal of nitrogen.

The Rabies Prevention Program at the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) recognized that their annual laboratory testing data wasn’t working for them or their constituents, even though they were publicly available. They collaborated with the Bureau of Laboratories and the Department's GIS office to develop a user-friendly mapping application - Rabies By The Numbers. Learn how the information is being leveraged to benefit all stakeholders, and how your data could do the same for you.
