TransCert launches food safety training for drivers 
delivering food from retail stores and restaurants to consumers.

Food home delivery is an exploding market with both retail and restaurant chains establishing systems designed to provide consumers with convenience service solutions. Along with this new demand, it can be expected that enforcement of “last mile” food safety regulations may fall on city, county or state agencies but that the industry has the primary responsibility to prevent food safety outbreaks.

While consumers may hold the brand accountable for food safety failures, delivery companies and drivers share in product and process liability.

Whether the driver is subcontracted or an employee, the restaurant or retail outlet is considered responsible for delivery food safety.  This basic driver training will help protect company brands against potential lawsuits and insurance costs.

The training is based on the FDA Rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods and industry practices.  The training takes one hour, is available on PCs, tablets or cell phones.  Basic transportation food safety concepts, problems and solutions are covered.  Training certificates are issued.  Driver food safety training is available at the following link.

Driver Training

Competency Exam Training

For companies requiring that trainees pass competency exams, the price for the three module course is $70 per trainee.  Competency exams are recommended for transportation operations managers and supervisors.  An exam is required at the end of each module.  Trainees must achieve a minimum score of 60% on all three module tests to earn a competency certificate.

This training is not “maybe” training but is REQUIRED for all personnel engaged in transportation operations upon hiring and as needed thereafter.

This required training is now offered by the Sanitary Cold Chain and is available as webinars or in download packages for use with your employees.  

The FDA defines a carrier as a “person who owns, leases, or is otherwise ultimately responsible for the use of a motor vehicle or rail vehicle to transport food. The carrier is responsible for all functions assigned to a carrier in this sub-part even if they are performed by other persons, such as a driver that is employed or contracted by a trucking firm. A carrier may also be a receiver or a shipper if the person also performs the functions of those respective persons as defined in this sub-part.” 

The new law was published on April 6, 1016, which mean there is little time left for perishable food carrier operations to provide this required, certificated training to all personnel.

2-Day On Site Management Planning Training

Our 2-day management training has been conducted in a number of major US cities with railroad, processor, carrier and packer attendees.  The training focuses on providing managers with compliance training certificates and is designed to lead them through the planning and implementation processes.  

The training is led by Dr. John Ryan, author of "Guide to Food Safety and Quality During Transportation 2nd Edition (see below).

Guide to Food Safety and Quality During Transportation provides a sound foundation for the improvement of the transportation sector responsible for the movement of food. While food safety agencies have been focused on producer, processor, retail, and restaurant food safety, the industry that moves the food has been largely overlooked. Ensuring trucks and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected, proper maintenance of refrigeration temperatures during transport, and avoiding paperwork delays are all areas of concern. Lack of government oversight has resulted in multiple, non-standardized approaches to food safety that are inspection-dependent,” the publisher says.

“This book focuses specifically on the food movers normally overlooked by today’s food safety auditors, compliance schemes, government agencies, quality control personnel, and transportation executives. It outlines delivery control solutions and provides basic standards designed to protect the transportation industry, as well as addressing problems associated with food transportation and practical solutions that are focused on container sanitation and traceability food safety and quality needs.”

The book is written for those involved in ensuring the safe transport of perishable food, including supply chain management, food safety management and quality management personnel. 

Available on Amazon & Barnes & Noble
