Food handlers who work while sick with certain illnesses or after being exposed to certain illnesses can contaminate food, putting your customers and your brand at risk. It is important that these food handlers know when it is safe to work and when they should report an illness to their manager. This poster will remind food workers when they should stop and report their illness.
It’s also critical that managers know what to do if an employee reports an illness and be able to assess the employee’s ability to work. For more information, managers can review the free Retail Food Protection: Employee Health and Personal Hygiene Handbook on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Website.
