OHIO Food Handlers

 

eFoodHandlers® OHIO Basic Food Safety

The purpose of this course is to expose Ohio food handlers to important Food Safety concepts. This course is not intended to train microbiologists or sanitarians, but to instill a basic understanding and to create sensitivity and awareness toward critical food safety concepts (e.g. hand washing, cross-contamination, temperature control, etc).

This is a basic concepts course for Ohio and should not be confused with the Manager's Course that is required for the 'Person In Charge' in many states. If you have questions about what course is required for your jurisdiction and job classification, we recommend you contact your local Environmental Health department. They are also a good resource for information surrounding your unique food handling and preparation situation.

Ohio Policy
The State of Ohio requires the person-in-charge is to pass a Certified Manager's Course (eFoodhandlers does not currently offer this course). The State does not require Basic Food handlers training although several counties have specific rules that may preclude eFoodhamdlers' online course. Contact your local Environmental Health Department for specifics on required certifications for your specific job and locality.
