New Training DVD Addresses Pests and Food-Borne Illnesses

HACCP

“Pests on the Menu,” is a new 13-minute training DVD that explains how pests can spread illness and disease, and reviews preventive measures.

ORLANDO, Fla. — “Pests on the Menu,” a new 13-minute training DVD, explains how pests can spread illness and disease, and reviews preventive measures.

The DVD includes high-quality macro video of pests such as cockroaches, flies, birds and rodents, and explains how and where they can spread disease. It also emphasizes the importance of a good inspection; explains the Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) management system; and reviews the high costs of pest-related problems at an account.

“Pests on the Menu,” was the brainchild of Steven Sklare of the Food Safety Academy, who recognized a need for a training tool that provides pest management professionals and food industry professionals with a better understanding of one another’s roles. Sklare’s idea was to resurrect and update a previous video produced several years ago by Jonathan Peck of Killgerm for use by the U.K.-based Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH).

Enlisting the Environmental Health Testing (EHT), a U.S. company partly owned by CIEH, the DVD was Americanized with audio narration by Orlando, Fla.-based IDEAS with assistance from Sklare. Additionally the DVD is available in these other languages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Gujarti, Hindi, Kurdish, Polish, Punjabi, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Turkey and Urdu.

The DVD’s audience includes pest management professionals as well as food handlers, managers and any person involved in food preparation, cooking, and serving.

The video costs $49.95 and can be ordered online at https://www.nrfsp.com.
