Does food safety training improve my food hygiene rating?

Food safety training will improve your hygiene rating. Health inspectors take into consideration the training provided to employees as well as the systems put in place.

In addition, higher levels of training results in greater awareness of correct food safety practices. This is therefore likely to further improve a business’s food hygiene rating.

General Food Safety Questions

What is HACCP?

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is an effective way to manage food safety hazards in the workplace. The principles taught within HACCP training courses help you to construct systems of managing the risks of each hazard.

Who needs a food safety certificate?

The law states that anyone who handles food requires supervision and some form of food safety training. Whilst a certificate is not essential, we advise anyone who handles food on the way to the customer should receive formal training.

What can poor food hygiene cause?

Poor food hygiene can result in harmful bacteria being spread through food. Therefore, customers and potentially staff can become severely ill.

Consequently, this can lead to legal action being taken against your business.
