The National Restaurant Association is rolling out the next generation of its ServSafe food safety manager program in print and online. The new “ServSafe Manager Book, 6th Edition” (formerly “ServSafe Essentials”) training materials include optimized, recalibrated and focused content. The website, ServSafe.com, also has undergone a redesign to simplify navigation and reflect the improvements in the updated edition.
The new version is based on a job task analysis developed exclusively by operators, academic bodies and regulatory experts for real-life situations across different operator segments. In addition to containing the latest FDA Food Code updates, it has a sharper focus on preventative measures to keep food safe.
“This new and improved version of our ServSafe program is—as it always has been—the result of industry collaboration to enhance usability, information flow, and knowledge retention,” said Paul Hineman, executive director-NRA Solutions. “Restaurant managers training with ServSafe will have a whole new learning experience that translates into everyday food-safety practices in any foodservice operation.”
The Spanish-language edition of the ServSafe Manager Book and the ServSafe Manager Online Course will be available in June.
