How to get a food safe certificate
Over 10 million Canadians are ill from food-borne illnesses every year. Most individuals do not report the illness or contact their doctor when ill so many do not get recorded. By enrolling in a food safe course you will learn to prevent the spread of disease and reduce the chances of anyone becoming ill from a food borne illness. The two available courses, food safe level 1, and food safe level 2 are available through Vancouver First Aid which is the leader in food safe training in the Vancouver Lower Mainland.
