After receiving your REFSS Food Safety Plan via email, you can save a copy of it to your computer's desktop for easy access:

  1. Find the email you received from REFSS/IGL support with the Food Safety Plan (pdf) attachment

    Outlook or Hotmail/Gmail:

  2. Outlook:
    Right-click the attachment and select "Save as"
      -  You will be prompted to select the location to save the file - select "Desktop" from the left side (a), rename the file if you like (b) and press Save (c).  

    The Food Safety Plan PDF file should now appear on your computer's desktop.

    Right-click the attachment and select "Download"
      -  Depending on your settings, the file will be auto-saved to your download folder, or it may prompt you like Outlook above.
