All staff handling food must have the necessary training and knowledge to ensure they do not compromise the safety of food whilst carrying out their duties.
Training can be obtained by a number of methods such as on-the-job training, adequate supervision, relevant prior experience as well as attending a formal and/or accredited training course.
It is important to note that compliance with the legal duty for training is not simply by having attended a formal training course. Managers and staff must actively put their knowledge of food hygiene into practice in the workplace, regardless of how this has been gained.
Training Courses by the Council
The training body used by the council is currently updating their training programme. The council is therefore not currently able to run any training courses. We intend to offer the new training course later in the year.
You can register your interest in future courses and we will contact you with details when they become available.
