Equal Offenses

As a food industry professional, are you sometimes driven to the point of exasperation as you interact with other professionals who should know better but fail to demonstrate adequate knowledge or concern about essential food safety considerations and measures? I am not talking about professionals who are starting out in their careers. The inexperience of young professional is understandable because we all start out with such inexperience. I am talking about individuals who have been in the industry for very long and claim to be knowledgeable. Lately I am finding myself almost always encountering this sort of thing but I realize that, as professionals, we have to be patient with each other. Both causing and showing exasperation are equal offenses. For the sake of achieving real progress in the industry, we need to be open to learn from and educate each other. 
The saying is true in more ways than can be imagined: "A little knowledge is dangerous."

Do you have additional advice for fellow professionals?

  1. It happens often. But ultimately explaining the need for food safety measures to others is a pleasure and we shall enjoy taking up that challenge.
