Will they know that the one that fell needs to be cleaned and sanitized? Do they know to wash their hands after picking it up? How sure are you that they will do the right things?

You believe your organization has the best food safety practices – but what about behavior? Do your associates have the proper training to know what to do and the commitment to do the right thing?
