FOOD HYGIENE TRAINING COURSES
CaterSafe can deliver a range of on-site and off-site courses by professional trainers, ensuring that you and your staff comply with the law and develop skills and knowledge to enhance your business.
Staff members who handle food must receive written or verbal instructions in the essentials of food safety before commencing work. This should include personal hygiene, temperature control, cleaning procedures and pest awareness. This training can be carried out on site by CaterSafe as part of an employees’ induction.
FORMAL LEVEL 1 TRAINING
Food Safety Awareness; a more detailed knowledge about food safety, aimed at food handlers involved with on-site support and front-of-house activities but not directly involved in the preparation of open foods (e.g. waiting staff, counter staff, cellar men, bar staff, retail staff etc.)
FORMAL LEVEL 2 TRAINING
Designed to impart detailed knowledge to food handlers who prepare and handle open food (e.g. chefs, cooks, kitchen assistants). This knowledge will include how to avoid cross contamination, safe storage, cooking, reheating, hot holding, and cleaning.
FORMAL LEVEL 3 AND 4 TRAINING
It is also regarded as good practice if managers, head chefs and food business owners take further, more advanced training which covers food safety and management systems in greater detail. The Food Hygiene Regulations introduced in 2006 have placed greater onus and accountability on anyone in the food business with supervisory responsibility. It is therefore vital they are equipped with both the knowledge and confidence to do their job effectively.
Formal level 3 and level 4 training is aimed at team leaders, supervisors and junior managers in medium to large businesses and covers legislation, supervisory management, temperature control (chilling, cooking), cleaning, contamination control, applying and monitoring good hygiene practices, implementing good food safety procedures and contributing to the safety training of others.
