Health and Safety: Food and Hygiene Safety
The Food Safety Act 1990 outlines the laws with regards to activities throughout the food distribution chain, from primary production through distribution to retail and catering. Food Hygiene legislation requires all food handlers to receive appropriate supervision, and be instructed and/or trained in food hygiene, to enable them to handle food safely.
Anyone handling food and drink within the catering sector must be trained in Food Safety and Hygiene and apply it to their work. In order to ensure that your workplace is in compliance with the main general food law requirements, including the provisions on food safety, you must keep up-to-date with legislation. Being familiar with the handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent food-borne illness will allow your workplace to operate legally, and help your understanding of the number of routines that should be followed to avoid potentially severe health hazards.
Training and courses in the area of food safety and food hygiene are generally delivered at a variety of levels and tailored to all sectors including Induction, Awareness, Refresher and Foundation Training. Courses are suitable for delegates working in contact with food, or the management of people in catering; and appropriately train delegates that work in food safety.

Training courses for Health and Safety rules and regulations
Training courses in health and safety provide delegates with the knowledge to implement and manage health and safety policies.
