WHY REST OPS SOLUTIONS?
HEALTH DEPARTMENT WARNING
In September 2015 the Health and Safety Code was amended by Texas Senate Bill (SB) 582 of the 84th Legislature (2015) when it was signed into law. The Bill was not being enforced until January 2016, to allow Food Service Operators the opportunity to make arangements to set up classes. This Bill authorizes the Health Department of any jurisdiction in the State of Texas to require any food service establishment to maintain a Certificate of Completion of a FoodHandler Training Course for its Employees of the food service establishment somewhere on the premises of that business. These employees are known as "FoodHandlers."
The simple translation of this Bill is that effective immediately, ALL FoodHandlers (ALL employees who work with food in the kitchen) MUST now be certified with the ServSafe FoodHandler Training Class and Exam, which Rest Ops Solutions provides. Additionally, all foodhandlers are required to be certified within 60 days from the date of hire. Rest Ops Solutions provides this training, the same way that it provides the Managers with their training.
This Bill set out to establish that a food service worker trained in a foodhandler trainig course such as ServSafe by Rest Ops Solutions, which is accredited by the American National Standards Institute is considered to have met a local health jurisdiction's training, testing, and permitting as required by the State of Texas.
Education of the foodhandlers provides more qualified employees, thereby reducing the risk of foodborne illness outbreaks caused by improper food preparation and handling techniques. The ServSafe FoodHandler Program by Rest Ops Solutions is dedicated to the health and safety of the citizens of the State, educating food service employees in the principles of food safety to produce safe food and products for Texas consumers.
Beginning in January 2016 the Health Department will begin citing Food Service Operators for violations who fail to comply with new law. The violation(s) may be written to the Person in Charge of the Operation, or to the individual foodhandler who violates the new law. The violation could range up to a $200 fine per violation, per person in violation of the law. For example, if there are three employees who do NOT have the ServSafe FoodHandler Certification by Rest Ops Solutions, they may each receive a fine of $200, and/or the manager alone could face a fine of up to $600.
The ServSafe FoodHandler Program by Rest Ops Solutions provides the framework for accrediting the food safety education and training programs for foodhandlers.
