What type of business do you run? If you’re not a restaurant or pub owner then you may think that you don’t need to worry about food safety – but that’s not necessarily the case. Food safety is a vital part of more businesses than you may realise.
Community groups, care homes, schools, offices and any other business that handles or provides food must ensure their standards of food safety are good.
Do you know what the new allergen requirements are?
How long are you allowed to leave food out for?
Does your business need a food safety management system (FSMS)?
How crucial is temperature when it comes to food safety?
These are just some of the questions that should be easy for you to answer confidently if a member of your team, a customer or an EHO inspector asks you. Anyone who works as a manager or supervisor in a business that handles food, in any capacity, needs to have a good insight into food safety, including their role in HACCP, training, communicating and monitoring safety.
Of course it is possible to carry out your own research, educate yourself or even wing it when it comes to food safety standards and practices but I wouldn’t advise it – in fact, whatever you do please don’t wing food safety! Getting this wrong can lead to all kinds of problems including potentially fatal food poisoning, loss of earnings and reputation or it could even land you in jail. It’s just not worth the risk!
In my opinion the best way to ensure you are fully up to date, compliant and confident when it comes to food safety in your business is to attend a training course with a reputable training provider. Now I may be a bit biased but I really do believe that the ELAS Level 3 Food Safety course that my team provides is one of the best in the industry.
As head trainer here at the ELAS Group, I know how important it is to make sure your training is up to date. That’s why I’ve decided to offer a special deal on the next course on October 24th, 31st and November 7th right here in my home town of Manchester.
This course, which is set over the three dates listed, will help you take a proactive stance to food safety whilst also ensuring that you are compliant with food safety legislation, can correctly implement all regulations, follow the correct FSM procedures and know how to control the hazards within your operation.
Everybody loves a bargain so, for my #TrainerTrev blue plate special, I’ve slashed the price of this course by almost half – 43% to be precise – so what are you waiting for? It’s time to train that brain!
To book your place on this course or simply to find out some more information drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call on 08450 50 40 60. If these dates don’t suit you then we will be happy to arrange another course at a time that will.
