Food Safety Program


The food safety program works to ensure safe food service practices. We offer public education, issue Food Handler cards and inspect and permit food service establishments.
The Food Safety staff helps to prevent food borne illness in Central Utah through the following activities:

There have been some changes to the Food Handler Class schedule for 2017. Classes will now be taught every other month at each location instead of every month as we have done in past years. If you need to atttend a class sooner than the next scheduled time, please call and talk to one of our Instructors listed below. Classes can be taught on an "as-needed" basis, but 10 or more individuals will be required to be signed up for each class.
Online classes are still offered through several vendors, and link to each vendor's training are included below.

Food Handlers Permit (FHP) Information 
New! Online Food Handler Permit
ALL food service employees are required by State law to have this certification. This includes cooks, servers, hostesses, dishwashers; and cashiers in convenience stores that serve potentially hazardous foods such as soups, hotdogs, and other foods prepared on-site. It is also recommended for nurse's aides. If your job involves handling food, you need a Food Handler's Permit.
Classes take about an hour. You will watch a video detailing correct food and utensil handling, hand-washing, cooking and cooling, and dishwashing. Afterward you will need to pass a multiple-choice test.
A Food Handler's Permit is good for three years, only in the six county health district. FHP or equivalent holders from other states must take the Utah course. For class times, costs and other information, contact your local health department office.
Due to the short time of the course, latecomers may be turned away!

Food Establishment Inspections and Operation Permits
Food establishments that sell or serve food to the public must get a permit and be inspected by the Central Utah Public Health Department. These establishments include restaurants, coffee shops, delis, grocery stores, school kitchens, temporary events where food is sold and more.
Click here for a permit application. Please bring the application to your local health department office.
The purpose of the inspection is to assure that the food is being handled properly from preparation through serving. Inspectors observe kitchen workers' food handling practices, inspect refrigerators and storage areas, take food temperatures, assure correct use of sanitizers and hand-washing practices. Any problem found is written up on an inspection report, and the manager is taught the correct procedure or method immediately.
To report a potential violation in food safety, contact your local county office.
