Trainer's Manual:

In order for this food safety training to be effective, it is highly recommended all the learners in your class have a copy of Retail Best Practices and Quick Reference Guide to Food Safety and Sanitation (ISBN 0-536-72740-6). Much of the information in the slides directly corresponds to the book. Each slide is mapped in the bottom right-hand corner to the corresponding page in the book. Your learners will also find the quizzes at the end of each lesson, and a final, tear-out summary quiz in the back of the book.

The trainer's manual and the PowerPoint training slide shows consist of four training lessons. The information in each training lesson corresponds directly to sections in Retail Best Practices and Quick Reference Guide to Food Safety and Sanitation.

The trainer's manual text is made up of lesson pages. Each lesson page has the corresponding PowerPoint slide at the top of the page. The slides contain the essential information the learner needs to understand. Below the slide, you will find the information found in the slide, as well as additional information on the topic being discussed.

Types of Slides

The PowerPoint slide shows consist of six different types of slides you will use to deliver and review the necessary information. These slides include:

1) Session Introduction slide

  • This is the first slide in the lesson. Give your session setup during this slide. Refer to the trainer's manual for:
    • An overview of the lesson
    • A suggested timeline
    • The total slide count
    • The location of the review questions for the lesson.

2) Things to Think About slide

  • These are questions you can ask your learners to determine how much they may already know about food safety. They can also be revisited at the end of the lesson to determine what was learned.

3) Lesson slides

  • These are the information slides from which the food safety information is taught. The sample slide below has the key components of the slide described.

4) Summary slide

  • This is a basic review of the lesson.

5) Test Your Knowledge slide

  • This slide directs the learner to the page in their Retail Best Practices and Quick Reference Guide to Food Safety and Sanitation book where they can find a short quiz that overviews the information in the lesson.

6) Health Inspector Highlights slide

  • This slide provides information on "hot buttons" for many health inspectors and should be used to reinforce best practices.

Compact Discs

CD1: PowerPoint Training Slide Shows
The first CD contains the Microsoft PowerPoint slide shows you will be showing to your learners. The CD includes four PowerPoint slide shows. Each slide show is an individual lesson. The lessons are:

  1. Lesson 1 – Foodborne Illness and Personal Hygiene.
  2. Lesson 2 – Time and Temperature Awareness.
  3. Lesson 3 – Preventing Cross Contamination.
  4. Lesson 4 – Cleaning, Sanitation, and Safety.

In order to view and customize the slide shows, you must own a copy of Microsoft® PowerPoint© and have it installed on your computer. See Appendix B for installation and customization procedures.

CD2: Posters
The second CD contains 11 easily printable food safety posters. The posters can be viewed through the "Explore" menu (found by "right clicking" over the "Start" button) on your Microsoft Windows-based computer after you have inserted the poster CD into your computer.

  • The posters focus on the four key areas in food safety and sanitation:
    • Proper personal hygiene
    • Time and temperature management
    • Preventing cross contamination
    • Cleaning and sanitizing
  • A thumbnail printout of each poster can be found in Appendix C
  • You can print the posters in a couple of different ways:
    • Print posters from the "Explore" menu
    • Bring the CD to a local printer or copy store (such as Kinko's®) and ask them to print the posters in color at any size
  • The posters are great tools to assist in reinforcing key topics during training sessions. They can also be used as props for a pre-shift meeting.

CD3: Image Bank
The third CD contains photos and illustrations that can be used to customize or create additional slides. Simply open the Trainer Lesson file you have installed onto your computer that you want to change and use the steps outlined in Appendix B to customize your slide shows.

Use all these tools—the PowerPoint slide shows, the trainer's manual, the food safety posters, and the image bank—to make your training sessions fun, educational, and effective. Only you know the education level, the timelines, and the individual needs of your learners. Use only the tools you need to best impact food safety and sanitation in your employees' environment.
