ServSafe Food Protection Training and Certification

Our certified ServSafe® Instructors and registered Proctors will certify or re-certify managers in the ServSafe® Food Protection Manager Certification. We train all food handlers with ServSafe Food Handler Certification.


Food Allergy Awareness Training

Our Master AllerTrain courses teach food service professionals how to better serve diners with special dietary needs, including food allergies, food intolerances and celiac disease.



Our certified HACCP Instructors analyze, evaluate, train, monitor and create a system to bring your establishment into HACCP compliance.



TIPS is a dynamic, skills-based training program designed to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking by enhancing the fundamental "people skills" of servers, sellers and consumers of alcohol. TIPS training is not accepted in California as a substitute for the RBS program but is in other jurisdiction where responsible alcohol training is required or recommended.

We offer pre-health department facility inspections designed to keep you prepared for a scheduled or surprise Health Department Inspection.

Our inspections can be scheduled or not, monthly, quarterly or prior to scheduled health department visits. Following the inspection, a full inspection report with photos of possible violations will be provided for you to make the necessary corrective actions. We provide a full library of logs, templates for allergen charts, cleaning, and self-inspections. We provide training as we inspect so that there is an understanding of the nature of the violation and the need to correct it.

Kitchens do not have to be new to be clean! Some of the cleanest kitchens with the best food safety practices are older. Some have original equipment that has been properly clean and well-maintained.
Make food safety and sanitation a priority in your establishment. Train and hold your teams accountable.

We believe in helping owners and operators build strong, positive cultures and create respectful and safe work environments for all restaurant chefs, managers and team members.  We offer Sexual Harassment, Discrimination and Awareness Training to both management and hourly teams. In California, training for management must take place every 2 years. In New York City, training must take place annually.

Safe & Sound Food Safety Consultants


We inspect and train for food safety and sanitation in  full and quick service restaurants, hotels, schools, national parks,  groceries, retail cannabis dispensaries, commercial commissary kitchens,  food trucks, wholesale and retail bakery and food manufacturing facilities. We prefer to inspect with a member of the management team and review the findings at each location before leaving. We prepare a written report that mirrors the inspection reports provided by the local regulatory agency. We are frequently contacted to participate in the Plan Check process for new facilities or those under-going remodel and offer a pre-opening health inspection ahead of the local regulatory agency’s first formal inspection.

Avoid cross-contamination – minimum bare-hand contact with ready-to-eat foods:

The main reason for not touching ready-to-eat foods with bare hands is to prevent viruses and bacteria which are present on your hands from contaminating the food. Improper food handling is one of the most common causes of foodborne illnesses. With proper training, foodservice employees can prevent the transfer of viruses and bacteria from hands to the customer’s food.

Knowledge of food allergies is a critical component of running a successful operation.  Both service and culinary team members must know what the 8 major allergens are and know if they are present in the food or beverages being served.  We can provide allergen charts and training based on your menu to educate your staff and help keep your guests safe and well.
