We've been building coursework for foodservice operations for years now
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 14, 2008
With the launch of WorkingSafer.com, the foodservice industry now has a new option for effective, affordable employee training. The site offers interactive online coursework for enterprises across the foodservice industry, including restaurants, supermarkets, convenience stores, manufacturers and packing facilities.
All classes can be purchased online and taken immediately. Content is provided by Swisher Hygiene, the industry's leading expert on commercial sanitation, as an extension of their SaniGenics program. SaniGenics is a three-tiered process that promotes greater cleanliness and safety at commercial facilities by scientifically analyzing critical contact areas, then presenting solutions and offering training to address any contamination that's discovered. Coursework on WorkingSafer.com is made available at no charge or at a reduced cost to Swisher SaniGenics customers as part of their relationship, at the same time that it's made available to the community at large.
Programming is provided by Certilearn, one of the country's foremost developers of online training, and their courses reflect that experience. All classes are highly interactive, with a combination of text, graphics and audio that is calibrated to appeal to multiple learning styles. Spanish language versions are also available for many courses.
"We've been building coursework for foodservice operations for years now," said Diana Kleiman, [title here] for Certilearn. "All that experience has gone directly into the offerings that are available on WorkingSafer.com, so users can feel confident that these classes are tested, proven and highly effective."
The site's general food hygiene courses cover a broad range of topics, including contamination prevention, cooking temperature accuracy and manager's certification preparation, among others. Grocery-specific courses include customer service, register and scanner operation, shrink prevention, alcohol and tobacco sales, lockout/tagout and more.
Value is a primary consideration at WorkingSafer.com. The site includes a free handwashing course for all visitors, both because handwashing is the single most important thing that any foodservice worker can do to minimize the threat of cross-contamination, and also to give interested parties the opportunity to see how effective and simple-to-implement WorkingSafer.com's courses actually are.
Paid courses start at as little as $10 per user based on the number of registrants. Volume discounts make it affordable for larger operations to enroll their employee base, and low starting prices help smaller operations give their employees critically needed training, as well.
In addition to coursework for the foodservice industry, WorkingSafer offers training resources for retailers, heath clubs and spas, educational and day care settings, automotive retailers and others. More information is available online at http://www.WorkingSafer.com.
