The aim of this course is to help the learner gain the required level of knowledge and confidence to ensure staff are instructed correctly and that they maintain correct operating procedures.
The results of poor food hygiene and food safety in commercial businesses can be devastating. Apart from the suffering caused by illness, loss of reputation will lead to loss of orders and financial loss, and possibly fines or closure. It is a legal obligation that all food handlers undertake food safety training, which will, of course, help to ensure food is wholesome, but this training must be backed up daily by good systems on the job instructions and supervision.
It is recommended that at least one person at a food establishment be trained to a level 3 standard, especially if they are in charge of staff and their training.
On completion of the course, you should be able to:
- Explain your responsibilities as a manager or supervisor of food-handlers
- Understand the responsibilities that a supervisor or manager holds in a food business
- Know the importance of preventing foodborne illness and the impact it has legally
- Maintain a good knowledge of the risks surrounding bacteria and how it can affect food
- Recognise the importance of ensuring food handlers maintain good personal hygiene
