How can you avoid giving your friends and family the gift of a food-borne illness? When it comes to preparing your holiday meal – you aren’t necessarily thinking about food safety but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1 in 6 Americans suffer from a food borne illness every year.
At Sodexo, we serve approximately 9 million meals to 15 million customers daily so we are thinking about how to prevent this 24/7 – we call that our Zero Harm Mindset. To learn more about preparing your holiday meal safely, view tips from Brian Turner, Director of Product Quality Assurance for Sodexo.
Nobody wants to spend the holidays in the ER. Last year, more than 90,000 people are treated in the ER for ladder-related injuries and nearly 4,000 injuries associated with extension cords.
At Sodexo we use the 3 Checks for Safety before beginning any task as part of our Zero Harm Mindset. You can ask these questions at home too:
- Do I know how to do the job?
- Do I have the right equipment?
- Is my environment safe?
