Why is Food Hygiene training important?
Employers who operate a food business, or one involving the processing of food, are responsible for training employees in food safety and hygiene – whether this is delivered as a practical course or an online food hygiene course. Additionally, employers must have a food safety management plan based on the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) principles.
This is to ensure that a proper food hygiene risk assessment is conducted, critical control points are identified and closely monitored in order to reduce or remove risks altogether, procedures are tested for effectiveness, and record-keeping is thorough.
