“Quality training is an investment that protects staff, business and a company or organisation’s reputation” Proper instruction and/or training of food handlers in food safety is a legal obligation and businesses and organisations must ensure that employees have the skills to ensure the health and well-being of the customers they serve. To assist clients to comply with these legal requirements JT Consulting offer a range of Food Safety training provision accredited by the CIEH to meet the expectations of clients, candidates and environmental health officers.
It is a legal requirement for all employers to ensure that work practices and premises comply with current Health and Safety legislation and to provide appropriate information, instruction, training and supervision to ensure the health and safety of their employees. In certain situations, health and safety training is particularly important, e.g. when people start work, on exposure to new or increased risks and where existing skills may have become rusty or need updating.
It is estimated that 21 million people in the UK suffer from an allergy, up to 8% of children & 2% of adults are diagnosed with a food allergy. Food businesses must ensure that the food they prepare, serve or sell is safe to eat: food allergens are a food hazard therefore they must be managed accordingly. Under the new Food Information Regs 2014, food business operators have to provide complete and correct food allergen information to customers and all staff need to be aware of the issues associated with food allergies and intolerances. It is no longer legally compliant to say "all our foods may contain".
