UTAH Food Handlers

 

eFoodHandlers® UTAH Basic Food Safety

The purpose of this course is to expose Utah food handlers to important Food Safety concepts. This course is not intended to train microbiologists or sanitarians, but to instill a basic understanding and to create sensitivity and awareness toward critical food safety concepts (e.g. hand washing, cross-contamination, temperature control, etc).

This is a basic concepts course for Utah and should not be confused with the Manager's Course that is required for the 'Person In Charge' in many states. If you have questions about what course is required for your jurisdiction and job classification, we recommend you contact your local Environmental Health department. They are also a good resource for information surrounding your unique food handling and preparation situation.

Utah Policy
In Utah, the Utah Department of Health (DOH) mandates food workers to acquire a food worker permit within 14 days from the start of work. Once you completed your eFoodhandlers training, take your certificate to your local Environmental Health office to acquire your official permit.

Utah Counties assess a $15 Fee on all certificates. This will be added to your Certificate Fee. For more information, visit: http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/bulletin/2013/20130601/37589.htm. An eFoodhandlers certificate of course completion for the Basic Food Safety course is approved for providing basic food safety training in Utah.
