USC Food Safety Program

The USC Food Safety Program was developed under local, state, and federal regulations and guidelines to: (1) protect the health and wellbeing of the USC community and its guests and (2) ensure that food served by on-campus vendors and in-house caterers is safe, unadulterated, and honestly presented.

USC Food Safety Audits

Food safety audits are conducted periodically by EH&S per the USC Food Safety Program. Responsible Parties (e.g., managers, supervisors) will receive notifications when:

  • Food Safety Audit is submitted
  • Comment(s) are added to a finding
  • A finding becomes overdue

When notified that an audit report is submitted, Responsible Parties may access the report through the Risk and Safety Solutions (RSS) database.
