There’s little doubt that food safety training is top-of-mind in any food business today but it can be tough to determine how best to put together a training program. Trainers and others in the food safety matrix are faced with the age old question of “quality versus quantity”—which should you put your money on? The answer could be “either.”
Let’s look at quality: lessons don’t have to be long to be effective. Can you think of a great, short song, and how it has stayed with you? That’s quality over quantity.
Sometimes quantity is the answer. You can’t teach someone to properly dismantle, clean, and reassemble a specialized piece of equipment with just a “Here are the tools, good luck” approach. And repetition can be an effective teaching tool, but it takes time.
