There are various tasks which we perform, repeated with less conscious thought.

Properly cooking food minimises the risk of food poisoning. Every day on our normal scheduled life, daily chores or work can at times reduce your alertness and replace the attention.

With passing of days we may not always recognize the importance of safety. But the main benefit of the creating food safety awareness and spreading knowledge is the reminder that food safety is our safety. 
Lack of training and poor understanding of food hygiene has been linked to food safety issues such as food poisoning and contamination.

Safe steps in food handling, cooking, and storage are essential in preventing foodborne illness. You can’t see, smell, or taste harmful bacteria that may cause illness.

“According to World Health Organization (WHO) every year millions of people around the globe fall ill and many of them die because of foodborne illnesses which makes food safety the top most public health priority.”

 

Keep clean Example – Products, Premises, People & Pests

 

Separate raw and cooked- To avoid cross contamination

 

Cook thoroughly – Undercooked foods are major threat to the food industries

 

Keep food at safe temperatures- Ensure the foods are monitored in right temperatures

 

Food safety is a matter that affects anyone who eats food. Whether or not a person consciously thinks about food safety before eating a meal, a host of other people have thought about the safety of that food, from farmers to scientists to company presidents to federal government officials and public health officials. Ensuring the safety of food is a shared responsibility among producers, industry, government, and consumers.
