Delivery Service Safety Awareness Card (RHI-DSA Card)
Deliveries and take-out orders have become important components of restaurant success. In the State of Nevada, delivery drivers are not required to have Southern Nevada Health Department (SNHD), ServeSafe, or alcohol awareness cards. However, delivery drivers often spend more time in contact with the food than the restaurant’s on-premise team. Whether you’re a restaurant with in-house delivery services, or an independent contractor for a third-party delivery service, you can benefit from our Delivery Service Safety Awareness course.
This three-hour course is a combination of Nevada state approved RHI materials, relevant sanitation regulations, and alcohol awareness laws with protocols. Curriculum includes:
- Health & Sanitation: SNHD Demerit System | Hazards to Food Safety | Proper Hygienic Practices | Foodborne Illnesses | Glove & Mask Protocol | Critical Holding Temperatures | COVID 19 Facts
