This easy to use online training program allows restaurant employees to watch a short video that explains all the aspects of the BMP requirements, why they are necessary and examples of how employees can make a difference. Anyone preparing or cooking food needs to know Best Management Practices for Fats, Oils and Grease.
The FOGQuest™ Best Management Practices Online Training Course is a simple, inexpensive way to provide access for all food service establishment employees to receive the training they need to stay in compliance with local FOG regulations and drastically reduce the amount of FOG affecting your local sewers.
For a one time yearly fee, municipalities can provide simple online access for employees in every single restaurant, food production facility, school or any other location within the municipalities operating area. If they are preparing or cooking food, they need to know Best Management Practices for fats, oils and grease.
Food service employees will learn:
· What are Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) and how are they produced?
· What grease related problems are created in the sewer system by FOG?
· How a food service employee can help make a difference
· What is a Grease Trap?
· What is a Grease Interceptor?
· Best Management Practices (BMP) to control FOG
· How to properly clean a Grease Trap
· What to observe when having a Grease Interceptor cleaned
· Outdoor Best Management Practices for FOG
· Best Management Practices Final Quiz
Best Management Practices (BMPs) for Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) are key to the success of a FOG program. With a few simple daily steps, Food Service Establishments (FSEs) can make a huge difference in preventing grease from entering the sewer system, while also helping to stay in compliance with local FOG compliance regulations.
Teaching food service employees the benefits of scraping plates before washing, dumping used fryer oil in approved waste containers and properly maintaining a grease trap or interceptor are inexpensive practices that drastically reduced the amount of fats, oils and grease (FOG) that a facility will discharge on a daily basis.
Traditionally municipalities or food service managers will provide a brochure, poster or small training manual to employees with expectations that BMPs will be learned and practiced. In some instances this works, but in most cases due to high turnover, short staff and busy staff schedules, BMP training falls by the wayside and the brochure ends up, unread, in the garbage.
Local FOG ordinance and permitting programs are requiring documented BMP training, with expectations that they are going to be followed on a daily basis.
During inspections, municipal FOG inspectors will observe that Best Management Practices are being practiced as well as attempt to verify all employees have been properly trained. But how is that really accomplished? How does an inspector know if a food service establishment employee really has been trained not to dump
used fryer oil down the drain? Unless these restaurant employees are being trained on
the FOGQuest™ Best Management Practices Online Training Program, it is almost impossible.
Once trained, food service employees will be required to take a short quiz, and will receive a FOGQuest™ Certificate of Completion, which when printed will verify they have received and understand the BMP requirements of that facility.
