Food Safety Infosheet Interventions

Food safety infosheets are one-page posters, built around a current food safety issue or outbreak and provide food safety risk-reduction messages that are targeted towards food handlers. These infosheets act as a food safety communication tool that illustrates the consequences of poor food handling, while promoting safe food handling practices that can reduce the risk of a food safety issue or outbreak at your site. Display these infosheets in commonly viewed areas by staff, such as the kitchen, bathroom or breakroom to support a food safety culture at your food facility.
