and gender - are typically factors over which food handlers
have little to no immediate influence. However, training
agencies such as health units and private companies can
attempt to address certain gaps by providing training in
multiple languages and by ensuring that important cultural
differences are explored and covered. Further research is
needed on determining an ideal time frame for food handler
recertification. To further support retraining, governments
should create policies that encourage or require food handler

food safety training and retraining at appropriate intervals, to
reduce knowledge decline and increase food safety knowledge.
