Orkin Commercial Pest Control & NSF Partnership

Orkin and NSF International prep food service operators for health inspections.

Orkin Commercial Services has partnered with NSF International to provide free educational resources to the food service industry. Each online tool equips business owners and operators in the fight against pests, while preparing them for health inspections.

A leading independent provider of food safety services, NSF International collaborated with Orkin on two Orkin University tools for food service providers – bringing a valuable third party perspective. The educational tools can be downloaded at www.orkincommercial.com under the “About Orkin” menu.

“Orkin’s partnership with NSF International allows us to bring the most up-to-date food safety educational and training materials to food service operators,” said Zia Siddiqi, PhD, director of quality systems for Orkin, Inc. “We want to prepare these businesses for the crucial pest control portion of health inspections.”

Orkin University tools certified by NSF help food service operators maintain best practices for sanitation, and prepare for health inspections:

Before Your Next Health Inspection is available in English and Spanish and provides restaurant managers and employees with a task list to help them prepare for health inspections, or simply train employees in best food-safety practices.

Sanitation and Storage Quiz is a tool to see how facilities rank in best practices for sanitation and storage. It’s a short 15-question quiz that can help managers improve sanitation measures.

NSF International is an independent organization that certifies products and writes standards for food, water and consumer goods. Both Orkin and NSF International share a common goal of protecting food safety. In addition to the NSF reviewed materials, Orkin University also provides a series of training videos on the “ABCs of Pest Habitat Modification.” For the past six years, Orkin has been named one of Training magazine’s Top 125 firms that excel in human capital development.
