Personal stories motivate farm workers to follow food safety rules


The California Leafy Green Handler Marketing Board (LGMA)  brings farmers together to ensure the safety of leafy greens.

The organization recently released both a new food safety training program for workers throughout the California leafy greens farming community and a new video project designed to communicate how important proper training can be to producing safe food.

The video was produced as a joint effort between the LGMA and STOP Foodborne Illness as a training tool. It uses the stories of people affectedby foodborne illness as motivation for workers to always practice proper food handling and is currently being used as part of the LGMA Tech training workshops.
