Employee Illness/Injury Decision Chart

Use this Employee Illness/Injury Decision Chart to determine if it is safe for you to work with food — or if it's best you stay at home.

Certain illnesses and injuries prohibit Food Handlers from working with food. This is because there is a high risk that the Food Handler will transfer pathogenic microorganisms from their bodies to food, food preparation surfaces or equipment.

Use this handy Employee Illness/Injury Decision Chart to determine if it is safe for you to work with food — and what you should do if you are experiencing symptoms of illness before or during your food handling shift.
