Training is an important part of a companys food safety program. This training App is brought to you by the American Mushroom Institute (AMI) and focuses on handwashing. This is the single most important activity employees can follow to prevent mushrooms from becoming contaminated. Since employees use their hands to handle mushrooms, it is very important that they learn the appropriate handwashing procedure, as well as when they need to wash their hands to prevent mushroom contamination.
Each AMI Food Safety Training App includes interactive activities, videos and quizzes to ensure employees are engaged throughout the course. At the end of each App, there is a multiple choice quiz or an activity to verify the employee has properly learned the information presented in the App.
Other AMI Training Apps include:
The ABCs of Food Safety
Personal Hygiene on a Mushroom Farm
Personal Hygiene in a Mushroom Packinghouse
Handwashing in a Mushroom Packinghouse
Cross-contamination on the Farm
Cross-contamination in the Packinghouse
Mushroom Industry Worker Safety Training Program
Each training app is available in English and Spanish.
