Before a person begins employment in a food establishment, he or she must successfully complete online food safety training in association with the application process to obtain a food handler health card as issued by the Southern Nevada Health District.

A person employed as a food handler in a permitted food establishment must possess a food hander card and maintain it at his or her work station or on his or her person so that it is available for review by the Health Authority.

The training offered to obtain the food handler health card covers basic food safety knowledge that anyone employed in or operating a food establishment, who handles, stores, transports, prepares, manufactures, serves, or sells food or who comes in contact with eating or cooking utensils or other equipment used in the handling, preparation, manufacture, service, or sale of food should know.
