The Growing Importance of Food Safety Education for Food Handlers at India

NIST opens Food Safety Certification now in India. Food handlers need to know why food safety is important and the only way to do that is through training. In the commercial kitchen, there should be no excuse for handling food in an unsafe manner. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI)has been mandated by the FSS Act, 2006 which elicits to provide training program for food handlers for safe food practices. Now,NIST helps food workers to value their role in the food safety culture.

NIST serves as a single reference point for all courses relating to Food Safety starting from catering unit, manufacturing industry to a single line of retail industry and food auditing.Why Food Safety Training is Important? Food safety is an important public health issue in India now. Eating at restaurants and other food service facilities increasingly has been associated with food borne disease outbreaks. Food safety training and certification of food handlers has been used as a method for reducing food safety violations at food service facilities. However, the literature is inconclusive about the effectiveness of such training programs for improving food safety and protecting consumer health.

Here are several reasons why it is important to train staff in safe food handling practices:

The employees are the ones actually handling food.The recent mid-day meal programme pesticide poison incidentat Bihar which killed 23 children was a big tragedy of this year eating contaminated food which is five times more than what is found in insecticides and pesticides. Since cooking professionals are the ones actually handling and preparing the food, it is important that they do so in a safe manner through proper food safety training. This protects both employees and customers to a safe food handling practices and conserve the food premises from legal issues and customer satisfaction.

It is a health code requirement. Currently, the only restaurant workers who need to be food safety certified are managers, but the FDA Food Code does stipulate that all food handlers need to have a working knowledge of food safety. What constitutes “working knowledge” is left up to the local health departments to decide. Chances are the health inspector will ask employees what safety measures they are using and maybe why those measures are important.

Reduce the risk of food poisoning.Eight people – including a pregnant women-have alleged that they suffered food poisoning after eating at a 5 star hotel at New Delhi. Many Food poisoning issues are prevailing in India and this elucidates the importance of food safetyeducation by the food handlers as advised by the FSSAI. Despite the investment and focus on training, researchers suggest that the impact of food handler training programs is inconsistent and program evaluation is rarely conducted.

Training helps with quality control.The basic responsibility of any food facility is to prepare, produce and market good quality and safe food that is honestly presented. It is the duty of the government to ensure compliance by industry to national food quality and safety requirements. Food safety education is a huge part of quality control.NIST offers courses on food safety, HACCP and lead auditor course FSMS. Not only providing education but also cater auditing services for all the food establishments.

Behavior will change. The best way to ingrain proper procedures into people is to change their behavior. Training and regularly applying those food safety training principles will eventually change the way staff handle and look at food to the extent that safe food handling just becomes second nature.

Employees can gain a better appreciation for their jobs. After so long, preparing food in a commercial kitchen can become monotonous, and employees may begin to question why they have to do things a certain way. Food safety training teaches workers why safe food handling is important. Once they realize that they are directly responsible for the health and safety of the customers, their jobs may feel a little less monotonous.

The number of food-borne disease outbreaks has been increasing around the world. Annually, about 1.5 billion cases of food-borne disease outbreaks are reported, resulting in 3 million deaths globally and also closure of the food business. We handle and consume food in one way or another. As such, the assurance of food safety is a shared responsibility. Through food safety education, NIST hopes to raise awareness about the importance of food safety. Now, you can also join NIST to promote food safety through education, and you too can play a part in ensuring your food is safe to eat.

Together, let’s keep food safe!

The purpose of education is to introduce communication to knowledge

NIST provides liberated training & consulting services for all ambitious professionals. In our current corporate scenario, the technical knowledge alone is not abundant the mode of deliverance for knowledge transfer is mostly a necessity nowadays.Many professionals, who are strong in the technical side, forsake in delivering their known concepts to their aides.This international certificate serves its purpose of filling the breaches between the communication and knowledge. 

“The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step” a Chinese proverb which elucidates the need for attaining our long term goal would begin only with a small step. For instance what are our goals?  Our goals will be set according to our strengths and opportunities only. What do goals play a role in training and in leadership? Be it any vertical Medical, engineering, Information technology, agriculture and food we need to educate ourselves and others in our organization. The level of information may vary but the depth of understanding will not.

There is a need for training, at present more than need it is a demand the main objective would be to make the personnel convey what they wanted to deliver?  An effective training method should also ensure that the effectiveness of the learning that had happened during the session. “Train the trainer” is a one of kind training program which enables personnel to become more proficient and qualified.

For all the technical hitches, beginning from a communication breach to misunderstanding of information conveyed throughout the organization. There is one answer for all the questions what we had asked for. PTLLS training session would be more of “knowledge transfer” from one trainer to a set of other trainers who has a passion and vision in delivering the same.

PTLLS Train the trainer is an eye-opening session for current people who train very frequently. This course is apt for people who have to teach or educate their colleagues on some task. For example, what role do you seek in future, be a supervisor, and team leader or sales development training we make them understand how communication impacts their training. An individual may be an expert in his field failing in the proper communication and standards he would fail his abilities forever.

Training is needed from cognitive to psychomotor skill. Tenure period in PTLLS Training gives self – realization for each and every individual to analyze the strength and weakness and this indirectly compliments not only for being a trainer but for all professions and designations.

For example, what role do you seek in future, be a supervisor, and team leader or sales development training we make them understand how communication impacts their training. An individual may be an expert in his field failing in the proper communication and standards he would fail his abilities forever.

Eligible for PTLLS:

“Train the trainer”  is most eligible for any employee in a n organization , the person who joins as a fresher, a supervisor who gets promoted to a managerial level and a college lecturer who wants to transform herself as  a corporate trainer, the Human resources who need to convey the entire company information during the joining and the exit interview. The communication has to be conveyed right.

Need for train the trainer programme

The American society for training and development (ASTD), says that although organizations struggled with some of the worst economic conditions in several decades, business leaders continued to dedicate significant resources for their employee training as a continual process which had reaped in a very successful way. This is also explained with a quote “An investment in education and training reaps highest interests”. A job assigned to an individual has an objective and a purpose. The employer should pave the way for the employee to evolve himself as a qualified professional.

Few renowned Corporates have initiated the Train the Trainer international certificate for their company’s supervisors, technical trainers, Human resources and people who are involved in day to day training in their job description.

Join “Train the Trainer” course at NIST which is available all over India, at NIST excellent skilled based training along with the picture-perfect knowledge transfer of how a session has to be planned, executed and evaluated is guaranteed. As the famous quote says “be the change you want to be”


The mode of communication is playing a vital role in our day to day life. Mastering in Technical knowledge alone will not fetch our goal, the context of being a trainer and getting ourselves qualified as a trainer is truly controversial and contradicting. NIST Conveys that any job delegated to us is a purpose and not a mere expectation. To fulfill your commitment towards your profession take the next step and get qualified as a trainer.

Lead yourself to lead others!!!
