Week 3 Sanitation and Food Safety

Professionalism is an attitude that reflects pride in the quality of your work. One of the most important ways of demonstrating professional pride is in the area of sanitation and safety. Pride in quality is reflected in your appearance and work habits. Poor hygiene, poor grooming and personal care, and poor work habits are nothing to be proud of.

Poor food handling procedures and unclean kitchen cause illness, unhappy customers, and even fines, summonses, and lawsuits. Poor kitchen safety results in injuries, medical bills, and workdays lost. Finally, poor sanitation and safety habits show lack of respects for your customers, for your fellow workers, and for yourself.

You study the causes of food-borne diseases and kitchen injuries, and you will learn ways of preventing them. Prevention of course, is the most important thing to learn. It is not as important to be able to recite the names of disease-causing bacteria as it is to be able to prevent their growth in food.

Sanitation refers to the maintenance of healthy and hygienic conditions that is free from disease-causing organisms

Human Resources in the Hospitality and Restaurant Industry

...Human Resources in the Restaurant and Hospitality Industry 8/13/2015 In the restaurant and hospitality industry, the manner in which human resources (HR) management is handled is largely dependent on the size of the company. This can present problems for smaller organizations that may not place a large emphasis on HR management until it’s too late. Many companies are corporate-owned and HR management processes are established at higher levels than just the specific locations where a majority of employees work. In smaller organizations, however, these policies are typically not established beyond the most basic, simplistic measures. These problems can largely be mitigated by placing a forward-thinking approach to HR management, and making adjustments to compensate for the business’ current organizational structure, or lack thereof. There are a number of difficulties in the nature of HR decision-making that make implementation difficult. Human assets have features that differ from most other resources in the company, such as its final product and financial capital. Human performance is not easy to predict; it is very challenging to make a definitive case that a particular investment clearly leads to improvements in employees' performance, which then has a direct effect on the financial results of a company. At the same time, costs associated with people are much clearer. While the link from employee pay to employee attitudes to employee behaviors to customer......
