Understanding Food Hygiene and Safety Regulations

Personal Hygiene

Under food regulations, the only admissible defence is one of due diligence.  Primary responsibility for any failure in meeting the requirements of legislation rests with the food business operator.

It is crucial that you have adequate procedures in place to ensure the personal hygiene of your staff.

This chapter details what the law says about illness in the workplace, hand washing, dangling jewellery and protective clothing.

Food Solutions new training modules help you prove you have trained your staff. Personal hygiene is one of the subjects covered. Training need not involve a certificated course. You need to ensure staff understand the risks they pose to food safety and take steps to minimise them. Having signed proof will demonstrate your due diligence. Available in Food Solutions package, see www.food-solutions.org to subscribe.
