What has changed: At least one person affiliated with the facility with manager or supervisor responsibilities must demonstrate that they are able to actively manage the food safety risks by being a Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) at most establishments. Some exceptions may apply.

How this will affect operators: At least one person with the authority to direct and control food preparation and service shall be a CFPM. In most cases, each facility will need to have a CFPM. Multiple facilities may be able to be managed by one CFPM, for this to be possible, the management of the food safety risks at those facilities will need to be demonstrated and evident. Only Conference for Food Protection ANSI CFPM Courses meet the accreditation requirements.

How this will protect public health: The presence of a CFPM promotes Active Managerial Control in food establishments which reduces the risks of foodborne illness 

What is PDPHE doing to help operators meet this requirement:  The Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment will be offering a handful of classes.  

How to sign up for a class: Call us ASAP at 719-583-4307 to sign up for a class listed to the left here.  If you would like to take the class on your own the above image has all of the approved providers.
