  • Having knowledgeable, well-trained staff.
  • Having a pro-active approach to identify, evaluate and control food safety hazards.
  • Having Standard Operating Procedures.
  • Knowing corrective actions.
  • Keeping records and monitoring food quality and individuals handling food.
  • Procedure Worksheet for Responding to Vomit & Diarrheal Events
