Around 20% of the UK population develop gastroenteritis each year (Fit for Work, NHS Choices) and this does not include other D&V illnesses such as the Norovirus or food poisoning
Symptoms can last one to seven days and an employee should not return to work until two days from the last symptom.
This can be a massive loss to a workforce, the illness can be spread to team members and clients and if the organisation is found to be at fault claims can be made and costs can be high.
Wherever food is served, it is important to demonstrate the highest standards of food preparation, handling, storage and serving.
The Food Safety Awareness course is designed with this in mind and complements the guidelines issued by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
The Food Safety Awareness course is designed for:
• New and existing employees in the care sector
• Anyone preparing or cooking food for consumers
• Individuals wishing to refresh previously learned skills and knowledge
• Businesses looking to provide staff development to food employees
• Self-employed, food-based small business owners
The certification displaying the course content will demonstrate how National Occupational Standards have been met.
Work through this course, watch the videos, navigate the resources to professional organisations and current legislation and prove your knowledge with interactive quizzes before being awarded the Food Safety Awareness certificate.
Care Training Services was established in 2011 with the aim of providing outstanding training in the Health and Social Care sector. To accompany the 100’s of hours of classroom training, we are pleased to bring you the Food Safety Awareness online course.
