Prometric, a trusted provider of market-leading test development and delivery solutions, led an educational discussion on critical food safety topics at the Florida Association for Food Protection (FAFP) Annual Educational Conference (AEC) held in St. Petersburg, Florida from May 22 to May 24. 

The FAFP is comprised of a diverse membership of industry, government and university officials, dedicated to education, research and development, service to its members and the community it serves.  Each year, the conference provides a dynamic forum for food safety professionals to exchange information on protecting the food supply.

“For businesses and those individuals handling food on the front line of defense, the pressure is greatest to uphold high standards for food safety and security,” stated Holly Dance, vice president, Prometric.  “We were pleased that Ibidun Layi-Ojo, one of Prometric’s leading food safety assessment experts, was able to share our latest insights on key success factors in developing a preventative food safety approach.”

By incorporating a sound assessment component to an overall strategy, organizations can be better prepared as public concerns continue to grow about what is and is not safe to eat.  Having a reliable food safety certification developed by a recognized knowledge expert in testing and assessment principles:

  • Allows those who handle food to demonstrate their knowledge and qualifications accurately and fairly
  • Assures employers that their employees have the skills to do the job that they have been hired to do
  • Offers the means for those in the food, restaurant, and retail industries to be active participants in the safeguarding of public health and safety
