FaBSAFE CERTIFICATE® 

Presented by Acuity Insurance & in partnership with Safe Food Resources

The FaBsafe Certificate of Completion was first developed in 2018 by FaB Wisconsin in partnership with the industry. It was designed in response to the basic annual food safety training requirements of Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

For FSMA Compliance: 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. 

To Cultivate Careers: From high school through university, the FaBsafe Certificate – recognized by industry employers - offers classes and students an easy entre to the industry from high school and assures college and university students in industry-related programming have training in alignment with industry requirements.

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.

The FaBsafe Certificate is presented by Acuity Insurance and in partnership with Safe Food Resources. Coming online and into the classroom in late 2021.
