FaBSAFE CERTIFICATE® 

Presented by Acuity Insurance & in partnership with Safe Food Resources

 

In 2018, FaB Wisconsin piloted an industry-accepted food safety training certificate of completion called FaBsafe. Today, the FaBsafe Certificate of Completion offers food and beverage makers and manufacturers, as well as related industry professionals and workers, a needed and affordable training option to meet the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act.

From the C-Suite to the plant floor, from temporary to contract workers –  FSMA requires that all persons in a food or beverage manufacturing facility (regardless of position) have documented food safety training. Individuals must receive training in the principles of food hygiene and food safety, including the importance of employee health and hygiene, at an appropriate frequency (annually or more often) depending on the food facility and the individual’s assigned duties. FaBsafe offers a foundation of training and an annual renewal to assist in your compliance. 

The FaBsafe Certificate® is affordable and reputable – and even more accessible, coming online this winter thanks to our partnerships with Acuity Insurance and Safe Food Resources.

The FaBsafe Certificate® is a four-hour certificate program designed to provide food and beverage manufacturers affordable and convenient basic food safety training. Upon passing modular quizzes, learners will receive a renewable and documented food safety training certificate of completion. A FaBsafe Certificate® is good for one year and renewable annually. To be awarded a FaBsafe Certificate® of Completion or Annual Renewal, learners need to achieve an 85% or better overall score on the quizzes.

NOTE: A FaBsafe Certificate® does not replace training specific to the food or beverage manufacturer you work for, but does offer a foundation of food safety training that may be applied to any food or beverage manufacturing environment.
