Author(s): Amanda Joseph
The present study was planned to assess the knowledge of food safety among food service personnel working in restaurants in Chennai city. 100 food service personnel working as food handlers in restaurants in Chennai city, were selected as participants for the study. Questions on the knowledge of food safety were regarding the temperature of foods, cross contamination, presence of germs and hand hygiene. It was found that the percentage of male participants who had good food safety knowledge was higher than their female counterparts. It was also found that for certain aspects of food safety, those who had undergone food safety training had a better knowledge of food safety in comparison to those who did not receive any training. Therefore, food handlers need to be educated on the knowledge of food safety to prevent the spread of food borne diseases.
