The difference between food safety and personal hygiene is this; Personal Hygiene: Is when you wash your hands(a pain but we have to do it), don't pick your nose and things… like that, Keeping us germ free. Food Safety; Is when you cook food properly, wash carrots before you eat them and etc.... Food safety is all about keeping food safe to eat.
Most all food items should be cooled from serving temperatures as quickly as possible. Large batches of soups or chili or most anything else that won't cool quickl…y, should be broken down into smaller portions, then cooled and refrigerated. You don't want to let foods sit at the danger zone. Bacteria, or other germs need time, food and moisture to grow, but most won't grow when the temp. of the food is colder than 41 degrees F or hotter than 140 degrees F. The temps between 41 and 140 degrees F. are in the danger zone. When food is left in the danger zone, bacteria can grow fast, and make poisons that can make your family very sick. Please take food safety seriously! FriPilot 20 years in food service.
food sanitation & safety is important in preparing food because when your hand are dirty and you will serve a food to a customer... you can pass the germs to a customer and it… can be a fever... but when your hand are clean.. the customer will like your service...

In or out of the workplace, inadequate personal hygiene or improper behavior by food handlers can result in tainted food and food-borne illness for those who eat the food.
The importance of personal hygiene and food safety in the food industry is that a lack of both will get people sick, may possibly lead to death, and then law suits. It can cau…se food borne illnesses and that is a big thing. Personal hygiene rules to remember are: shower daily, wear a clean uniform and apron, wash hands when you enter the kitchen and whenever you touch your face/hair/put your hands in your pockets/ touch dirty towels/take out the garbage/eat/drink/smoke/use the restroom (remove apron and chef's jacket before doing so), wear gloves when you have cuts on your hands (change often and wash hands before putting gloves on and after taking them off), wear a hat or hair net to prevent hair from getting into food, don't chew gum, use plastic spoons to taste food and then throw them away. Food safety would be to keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold (meaning out of the danger zone), avoid cross contamination by using a clean cutting board to prepare raw beef, pork, seafood, or chicken, wash your knife and sanitize it after use, don't mix raw and cooked product, observe FIFO, always store raw meat, seafood, and poultry on the bottom of the fridge, and ... I think the picture is clear. Keep it clean, keep it safe and the health department won't shut you down and that is very important.
what are the costs of poor food hygiene
To put it simply, Food Safety relates to the proper storage of the food, temperatures, prevention of cross contamination of foods, etc. Food Hygiene is part of f…ood safety and is dependent on YOU! Is your hair pulled back or under a hat, finger nails cleaned, gloves worn, aprons worn, hand washing and so on. In other words food hygiene is what you do to prevent contamination of food.
Yes, because it will help you not to become ill and get serious diseases from the food you are eating. Without food safety you could cut yourself, make a fire, or hurt another… person that is a bystander. Hygiene is extremely important for many of the same reasons. For instance, if you don't wash your hands after handling chicken you could kill someone!

Tourists are not going to enjoy their visit to any given tourist spot if they are served bad food that makes them sick. And if they do not enjoy their visit, they won't be com…ing back, nor will they recommend that spot to their friends. So tourism will decline.
I really depends on the agency. They typically have a certain aspect that they will focus on. Their powers can range from simple warnings extending to plant closings, fines an…d jail time.

We need to study the food safety and sanitation in order to prevent the spread of germs which can cause of food poisoning and it can cause also illness..
its important to be sanitary when your cooking, or preparing food, so who ever's eating it doesn't get food poisoning. when you have food poisoning, you vomit, get cramps, and…/or diarrhea. but you may not get food poisoning rite away, it could be weeks until you start noticing side affects, hope this answer was helpful.
Food safety and hygiene are crucial when handling and preparing food. It is what prevents sickness, death, and litigation.
Yes. If it wouldn't be required of staff to follow the established procedures, there would be no point in having a food safety plan.
