Providenciales, 09 Apr 2015 – As World Health Day continues to be marked in the Turks and Caicos, the Environmental Health Department, EHD explains that it managed to draw 18 food handlers in South Caicos out to a food safety workshop held on Tuesday. EHD Director Kenrick Neely said the focus of the one day session was to educate on personal hygiene, pest control, solid waste management, hand washing techniques and avoiding cross contamination of food. Other elements of the food safety initiative of the Department will take Neely and his officers to the fisheries plants and restaurants in South Caicos for inspections and then into the Capital, Grand Turk for a food handlers workshop tailored to the vendors at the newly launched Fish Fry there; that workshop is set for Saturday. All participants will receive certificates. World Health Day was commemorated this past Tuesday, April 7… the theme: ‘Food Safety ‘from farm to plate, keep food safe’.
