Training staff and managers in hygiene best practices is an important step to developing a culture of food safety. Failing to do so increases the risk of food contamination and the public’s poor health. In turn, this can lead to customer dissatisfaction, potentially huge legal costs and the loss of your good reputation and market share.
Our six-hour food handling course has been designed for people involved in food preparation and provides basic hygiene principles for all food handlers. This course is for people wanting to work as food handling personnel, food safety supervisors working in tourism, and hospitality and catering organisations with permanent or temporary kitchen premises, smaller food preparation or bar areas.
Employees benefit from the food handling course by gaining knowledge and skills when dealing with food preparation. Employers benefit also by making sure all staff have done the food handling course and have the right food safety skills and knowledge. This is not only a legal requirement but also good for business.
