Introducing Listeria Food Safety Assessment To Complement Existing Training Programs

Prometric®, the authority in food safety testing and leader in service excellence for the industry, announced the launch of its Listeria Food Safety Training Assessment, the food safety industry’s first micro-credentialing assessment.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), listeria causes an estimated 1,600 illnesses each year in the U.S., with fatalities occurring in about one out of every five people infected.

Requested by both food retailers and trainers, Prometric’s Listeria Food Safety Training Assessment incorporates food safety best practices to help determine the viability of a foodborne illness prevention regime. The 20-question assessment complements any current food safety manager training and effectively assesses workforce preparedness and knowledge—helping to keep the public safe from incidents involving listeria.

“With the Listeria Food Safety Training Assessment, retail employers and food safety training organizations can offer a preventative approach to protect the public and safeguard their businesses from the negative consequences stemming from an infection of listeriosis,” stated Holly Dance, vice president, Prometric. “This benchmarking assessment is just another step we’re taking at Prometric to drive innovative practices with food safety assessment programs,” she adds.
