The Division of Public Health (DPH) considers food safety to be a vital part of protecting the public. Basic knowledge about food storage, preparation, and handling is essential to the prevention of potential foodborne illness. DPH is committed to protecting the public through education, inspection and efforts like the Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) requirement.
On Friday, April 1, 2016, DPH will require that permitted food establishments have a minimum of one employee, the person in charge (PIC) at the time of inspection, who is a CFPM. A CFPM is someone who is certified in food safety knowledge in areas such as personal hygiene, cross contamination, time and temperature, receiving and storage and food safety management systems. This is accomplished through successful completion of an accredited program, such as ServSafe®.
