The article presents advice from Susan Johnson, school nutrition director of schools in Jackson, Tennessee, to ace health inspections in schools. She advises schools not to rely on state or local health inspections to ensure that their operation is safe. A weekly self-inspection must be made to ensure that the food is safe. Rewarding employees is one way to emphasize the importance of food safety.
