If an establishment is approved by RVP violation fees can be mitigated upon inspection by the ABC. All employees must be trained and records up to date


ServSafe Food Handlers books used for this training.

South Carolina does not require staff in a food service establishment to have food safety training at this time. It is a good practice to teach food safety to all food handlers. The ServSafe Food Handler program is a great foundation for food safety and it is easy to teach and learn.

(This training is primarily for wait staff, bartenders, cooks, dishwashers, etc. Managers would take the ServSafe Managers Course.)
