What is food handlers training?
Food handlers training, also called food safety training, teaches employees in restaurants and other food service facilities the basics of safe food preparation. Food safety is so important that three federal agencies, states, and local health authorities collaborate to create food handler training standards.

The exact content and requirements for food handlers training vary by location. Still, it usually includes cooking times, safe heating and cooling, sanitization standards, risk factors for foodborne illness, and other crucial food safety guidelines.

Do I need a food handler's card?
If you are a food handler in Colorado, it is recommended that you complete a food safety course that is approved for use in your county. Completing an approved food safety course will award you a Colorado Food Handler Card. A food handler handles, prepares, serves, sells, or gives away food for human consumption.

Foodborne Illness Awareness Chapter 1
Foodborne illness awareness is crucial for preventing food poisoning. Each year in the United States, approximately 48 million cases of foodborne illness occur, leading to 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths.

Remember to practice proper food safety by washing hands, separating raw meats, cooking to the right temperature, and promptly chilling perishable foods.

Person-In-Charge Role and Responsibilities Chapter 2
Regarding basic food safety, the person in charge must ensure proper hygiene practices, including handwashing and sanitizing surfaces. 

Additionally, they should oversee food storage, handling, and cooking processes to prevent contamination and promote safe consumption.

Proper Handwashing Chapter 3
Proper hand washing involves thoroughly wetting hands with clean, running water, applying soap, and scrubbing all surfaces (including between fingers and under nails) for at least 20 seconds. 

Rinse hands well under running water and dry with a clean towel or air dryer.

Health and Hygiene Chapter 4
Health refers to an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. 

Hygiene, on the other hand, involves practices that maintain cleanliness and prevent the spread of disease.

Cooking Temperatures Chapter 5
When cooking meat or eggs at home, remember these important temperatures: 

  • Eggs and all ground meats must be cooked to 160°F (71°C). 
  • Poultry and fowl should reach 165°F (74°C). 
  • Fresh meat steaks, chops, and roasts are safe at 145°F (63°C). 
Use a thermometer to check temperatures and ensure safe food preparation.

Temperature Danger Zone Chapter 6
The temperature danger zone for basic food safety is typically between 40°F (4°C) and 140°F (60°C). 

Bacteria thrive and multiply rapidly within this range, significantly increasing the risk of foodborne illnesses.

Contamination & Cross-Contamination Control Chapter 7
Contamination refers to harmful food substances (such as microorganisms or allergens). 

Cross-contamination occurs when these contaminants transfer from one surface or food item to another, potentially compromising safety.
