According to Zia Ahmed, Dining Services Director for OSU, “Training a large group of student employees in a physical environment can be a challenge. We feel that the online system will streamline the process. Our hope is to significantly reduce the time it takes from when a student employee starts working to the time they complete the training.” Eric Webster, Managing Director of Safe Food Solutions added, “We are pleased to add The Ohio State University to our distinguished and growing list of campus foodservice clients.
