Food Safety Tools and Resources

Fairfax County Health Department has created tools and resources that may be used in any establishment to create food safety systems through Active Managerial Control (AMC). These tools are designed to help those establishments that would like to start or strengthen their AMC.

STAMP provides an opportunity for an establishment to showcase its AMC practices and dedication to food safety. Partner with your Environmental Health Specialist to find the resources that would make the biggest impact in your facility.

The following resources are listed by subject matter and may contain a fact sheet, a sign and monitoring logs for control over each risk factor or good retail practice.
