Employee Certification

To ensure your Managers/Employees have read and understood the latest health and safety guidelines, Safe Eats offers a certification program. To participate, Members simply register Managers/Employees through the Certification Dashboard on the Member site. Safe Eats sends each employee instructions on what information to read then asks that they take a short quiz. You can check the status of each employee’s status through your Member Dashboard. Safe Members are required to have all Managers complete the certification program and encourages Members to extend the program to all employees.

Zedic App

Zedic connects restaurant operators directly to a team of public health, food safety, and medical professionals 24/7 so you can get immediate answers to every business health question you face.

Live Chat

We’re right there with you when you need us. Simply open up the chat, let us know what you’re dealing with, and one of our medical professionals will help guide you through it.

Whether you’ve got a quick question about the right product to use, or a sick employee who came to work, we’ve got the answers.

Knowledge Base

Sometimes, all you need is a great tutorial or Q&A. We’ve found that it’s so hard to find simple, plain-spoken explanations of the types of health issues we face.

So we provide you with a library of simple documents & guides that anyone can understand. But most importantly, they include the key takeaways YOU need to make a decision, like do I need to shut down my restaurant or hotel?

Health News Alerts

Knowing what’s going on around you (and around the country) is necessary for staying ahead of public health issues. If you know what’s out there, you can be prepared.

Is there a measles or Hepatitis outbreak in your community?

We share the most important, timely public health updates that matter to you.
