Food Safety and Personal Hygiene (for Food and Beverage Services)

Cases of Food Borne Disease can cause a irreparable damage to the reputation of a food establishment. One single case of food poisoning can already discourage dinners from coming back to the restaurant or canteen.

It is therefore important for every server to understand and practice the rules of food safety in handling and serving food.

  • Dirty surroundings

  • Crowded places like storerooms that are dirty
  • Dirty and unsanitized containers, pans and utensils
  • Undisposed, uncovered leftover food

A Food Borne Illness is carried or transmitted to people by contamination or cross-contamination of microorganisms or bacteria, virus or toxins through:
Food and contaminated food containers
Unsafe of unhygienic food handlers

Conditions that contributes to the growth of bacteria
  • Temperature
  • Time
  • Moisture
  • Oxygen
  • Food
  • PH level

The word Food Safety covers practices designed to:
  • Prevent the growth and multiplication of bacteria
  • Prevent food from contamination of bacteria, toxins and other harmful substances
  • Prevent food spoilage
  • Prevent the occurrence of food poisoning and infection as well as the spread of disease
  • Retain nutritional and aesthetic qualities of food

Contamination is the presence of harmful substances not originally present in the food

Cross-Contamination occurs when micro organisms are transferred from surface or medium to another as in a contaminated/ dirty container to food, dirty hands or contaminated food to uncontaminated food.
