What’s It About?

The course covers the importance of good personal hygiene and the essential elements of cleaning.  It also gives them an awareness of cross-contamination and how to prevent it.

Who Should Attend?

This course is ideal for employee’s who have access to food areas, including check out staff or warehouse employees.

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.
