Business Security/Safety Training:
It is imperative that both employees and customers have a safe environment to work and enjoy your establishment. We provide comprehensive security training for employees addressing issues of proper and adequate safety measures that must be taken in order to properly protect customers, staff, and your establishment.
Food Safety Training:
Florida state laws require that all food service employees receive training and certification in food safety. SERVE provides training dealing with preparation, serving, displaying, and storage of food served to the public. NOTE: This training meets Florida requirements and is available for all food establishments nationally.
National Food Managers Certification:
SERVE provides national Food Safety Manager training, testing, and certification as required for managers in the food service sector.
SERVE Program offers a unique service to its clients. We can design a program according to your schedule, coming to your location to perform the required testing and training. The program can be fine-tuned for either an individual or a group session. If on-site testing is inconvenient, contact us for dates and times to attend classes off-site as well.
SERVE provides random alcoholic beverage law inspections to detect violations and prevent them from occurring in the future. In addition, we offer monthly supervisor inspections which cover civil premise liability, criminal beverage law, illegal drug trafficking, as well as I.D. checking, and more.
SERVE will arrange to visit your establishment "under cover" to evaluate your operations and employee performance (i.e., proper ID checking, serving, customer relations, etc.).
We maintain all paperwork and records as required by law in both the alcohol and food safety training programs.
Meetings and Updates:
SERVE provides continuous updates on state beverage laws and pending legislation, as well as required meetings for all servers, I.D. checkers, and managers. We keep you on the cutting edge of all new information regarding illegal drug activity, arrest scenarios, civil liability, and legislation which affects your business.
Workman's Compensation Discount: (optional)
SERVE can provide your business with "Drug-Free Workplace" policies and procedures. This can mean a 5% reduction on Workman's Compensation insurance for your establishment's participation. SERVE can arrange for employee drug-testing at a discounted fee through Smith and Klein (a Nida-certified laboratory).
State-of-the-Art Web Site:
The SERVE web site provides you with 24-hour access to current events, legislation, articles, state beverage violation information, and data concerning the hospitality industry and our programs.
