The Food Standards Agency highlights that:
"Food business operators are required by law, to ensure that food handlers receive appropriate supervision and instruction/training in food hygiene in line with their work activity and should enable them to handle food safely".
So wherever you work, whether in a healthcare environment, café, bar, hotel, restaurant, a school environment, a nursery, a fast food outlet or kitchen environment, this course provides essential information when seeking to meet your obligations and adhere to UK and EU requirements.
It’s your responsibility to ensure that no-one is put at risk from food that has been prepared and/or handled by you and this course has been written against industry and sector standards/requirements and follows nationally recognised syllabuses that are used by both The Royal Society for Public health (RSPh/RIPh) & the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEh).
Understanding the key topics, your individual responsibilities and the codes of practice relating to Food Safety and hygiene will help to ensure you have shown due diligence and as a result, are more likely to be in a position to not only help protect public health but also protect yourself and your employer from the risk of prosecution.
This comprehensive course therefore covers the following areas:
- The Importance of Food Safety
- Food poisoning
- Control Measures
- Work Areas
- Storage and Temperature Control
- Allergens and the law
