Food Safety

The law requires that all food handlers need to be trained according to their food handling work activities.

By practicing the four Cs of food hygiene – cross-contamination, cleaning, cooking and chilling – those working with food can avoid food poisoning and other illnesses.

While many believe that common illnesses like diarrhoea and sickness derive from bacteria outside of the kitchen, they’re actually more likely to develop from poor hygiene. Food poisoning is usually a direct result of inadequate hygiene with germs for foods like meat, poultry, eggs, fish and seafood, raw fruit and raw vegetables. It can often be a result of food not being cooked properly, bacteria being transferred to kitchen surfaces or contamination with other foods.

In these instances, poor hygiene when preparing and serving food can cause illnesses that can easily be avoided, which is why it is important to follow the four Cs 

HACCP is a way of managing food safety hazards. Food safety management procedures should be based on HACCP principles. 

HACCP involves:

  • looking closely at what you do in your business, what could go wrong and what risks there are to food safety
  • identifying any critical control points the areas a business needs to focus on to ensure those risks are removed or reduced to safe levels
  • deciding what action you need to take if something goes wrong
  • making sure that your procedures are being followed and are working
  • keeping records to show your procedures are working

It is important to have food safety management procedures that are appropriate for your business.

An enjoyable and stimulating course.

I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed the First Aid at Work course! Paul is a fantastic trainer - he’s very engaging and it’s obvious that he genuinely cares about making sure his trainees have the knowledge and skills needed to confidently perform first aid if required. There was the perfect balance of theory and practical activities, and I was really impressed by how Paul promoted covid safety and being respectful to each other when we were undertaking the practical elements. I’ve had such an enjoyable three days and feel like I’ve learned so much! Keep up the good work, Paul - I hope our paths cross sometime in the future (maybe on the refresher course!)
