Basic Food Hygiene Training 

Over 2.4 million people in the UK experience food-borne illness each year. That's enough to make anyone's stomach turn! This course can teach your staff to prevent them from causing food-borne illness.  

 

 

What is Food Hygiene Training Course? 

Food hygiene is about one thing, preventing others from becoming unwell when they consume food. The 4Cs of food hygiene; cleaning, cooking, chilling and cross contamination make all the difference.  
 
The Food Standards Agency state that anyone who may touch food, come into contact with surfaces where food is prepared; even those in the same room where food is being prepared, count as a food handler. All food handlers are at risk of contaminating food, especially the ones without any training. 
 
Statistics show that over 2.4 million people in the UK are living with a food-borne illness such as Taeniasis and Trichinosis, Viral gastroenteritis, Botulism, Brucellosis, and Hepatitis A, among others. This has caused an increase in the need for healthcare professionals to administer assistance to these patients. It has also led to an increasing need to educate persons who handle food to know and implement the right measures to ensure food is safe to be consumed. This is where Leicestershire Training Group comes in! 
 
Under our basic food hygiene training course, your employees would be trained by a team of certified and experienced nurses on the various food safety and hygiene requirements, such as the standards prescribed by the Food Standards Agency. Employees would also be educated on the 4Cs of food hygiene, namely: cleaning, cooking, chilling, and cross-contamination. 
 

What Are The Benefits of This Food Hygiene Training Course? 

 
Food plays a significant role in your daily activities. This is because it provides nourishment and ensures good health. However, the state of your food is equally important. Contaminated food contains viruses, germs, bacteria, and other harmful elements. This could cause various diseases, such as cancers and diarrhoea. Therefore, it is vital to ensure your healthcare employees receive adequate training concerning food safety and hygiene – no matter the kind. The Leicestershire Training Group has you covered with our comprehensive Food Hygiene Training Course! 
 
There are plenty of benefits to undertaking this course, from your staff understanding how to effectively clean an area where food is stored, cooked and served through to knowing how to store food correctly. As with most things in the workplace, one thing can quickly lead to another. Not storing food correctly can lead to an infestation within your premises; something no one wants. Our course also emphasises the importance of integrating robust food hygiene practices into your management system to maintain high-quality services and prevent risks of contamination. 
 
Among the benefits of protecting people, is minimising staff sickness and infestations. This course also helps your staff achieve a higher food hygiene rating during inspections done by environmental officers or maintain the 5-star rating you currently own. 
 
Additionally, there are several benefits you can gain from taking this course with us. For instance, you can play your role to ensure your organisation is not a contributor to diseases among the populace. You would know the proper way to store food and the necessary preliminary steps that must be undertaken to ensure food is safe and hygienic. 
 
Upgrading the knowledge and skills of your employees brings about several benefits for your business, such as increased productivity, more revenue, and increased motivation. All these components come to play to ensure your business’s success. So, let us help you get there!
