Who Should Attend?
This Level 1 Food Safety in Retail course is ideal for employees who have access to food areas, including check out staff or warehouse employees.
However, this course is not for those people who prepare and handle open food, including deli products, sandwiches and cakes. We recommend that they undertake the Level 2 Award in Food Safety qualification.
Why’s It Important?
Employers have a legal obligation to comply with the stringent rules of the Food Safety Act 1990 and its associated Food Hygiene Regulations. It is these systems that are fundamental to a “due diligence” defence.
You also have to ensure they receive food safety training appropriate to their job role.
Therefore, failing to comply with these regulations can carry heavy penalties in the way of fines, poor staff morale, loss of business, a bad reputation and possibly even imprisonment.
