Food hygiene and health and safety training is compulsory at the start of employment in a food related business. However, if ineffectively managed this information loses value and bad practices and unnecessary risks follow.

Your clients trust you to know how to give them a positive safe experience.

How conversant are your team about health risks? Do they appreciate the ramifications of salmonella, listeria, campylobacter? Do they comprehend that placing items incorrectly in refrigerators isn’t an inconsequential action? Can you boast a 5* Food Hygiene Rating Scheme score?

It is imperative to maximise the knowledge’s worth with application that forms in to habit. It is a legal requirement that food safety management systems in the UK and EU are Hazards Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) based and having an HACCP plan specifically tailored to your needs makes adherence to legislation for employees, supervisors and management considerably easier to achieve.

With HACCP and its attention to legislation, the performance levels required are fixed, workers understand their role in safety and risk assessment and management can employ effective tools and records as naturally as opening the door to the paying public.

Peace of mind from HACCP training and initiating an HACCP plan for constancy is arguably priceless.
