Food Safety Modernization Act Produce Safety Rule:Worker Health, Hygiene and Training

The Produce Safety Rule (PSR) is one of the seven food safety regulations that are part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The PSR sets a series of standards for the safe growing, harvesting, packing, and holding of produce grown for human consumption: 21 Code of Federal Regulations Part 112. The PSR (subpart D) describes minimum standards for health, hygiene and training programs for workers. Contamination of produce may occur when bacteria, viruses or parasites are transferred from a person, animal, or food contact surface to the produce. There are many ways workers may introduce contamination including hands, clothing, footwear, feces, equipment, tools, injury and illness. Key requirements of the worker health and hygiene subpart in the PSR are outlined in this publication. 8.5x11 Color DS 24# stapled set (upper left)\12\SIYLUYBD201153.jpg
