Worker health and hygiene training for farm workers, including family members, is an important step in reducing the risk for human pathogen spread on farms. Training of workers does not need to be complicated, but does need to be specific to your operation and your farm food safety plan (everyone should have one).
Worker health and hygiene training is required for passing a third party audit. Documentation must be kept regarding what workers were trained, when they were trained and what materials were used for the training.
A 15 minute training DVD produced by Cornell is available for $20 at both the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cumberland County office and the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Mercer County office. This DVD is an excellent starting point for the training of farm workers on proper health and hygiene practices.
