What’s It About?
This half-day Level 1 Food Safety in Catering course introduces your employees to good food hygiene practices. It will give them a basic understanding of food safety so that they can work safely.
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 employees who work in a food environment but who don’t handle or cook food. These would include but is not limited to, waiting or bar staff, kitchen porters or employees handling low-risk or wrapped foods.
This course is not suitable for anyone who prepares or cooks food. The Level 2 Award in Food Safety qualification is more appropriate.
Why’s It Important?
You have a legal obligation to comply with the stringent rules of the Food Safety Act 1990 and the associated Food Hygiene Regulations; it is these systems that are fundamental to a “due diligence” defence.
If your staff work within a food handling environment, you have to ensure they receive food safety training appropriate to their job role.
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.
