The Impact of an Intervention on the Hygienic Status of Food Handlers and Food Contact Surfaces

Nik Rosmawati Nik Husain & Noor Izani Noor Jamil

 

This monograph shares the research findings that used the theory of planned behaviour to change the safe handling of food among food handlers. Food handlers who underwent the Food Safety Training Programme – a newly developed module – showed a sustained and successful improvement in safely handling raw food and cooking equipment. They also demonstrated a significant improvement in handwashing practices and in practising environmental sanitisation. Thus, this module is recommended to be used in all school canteens and food premises to ensure safety practices in food preparation and handling. Our country should look forward to the best education module for food handlers that can help reduce the spread of food and waterborne diseases.
