Food safety course will help Fenland businesses to be ‘5 rating’ ready!
A food safety training course to help businesses improve their food safety management is
being held by Fenland District Council later this month.
The course is being held at the council’s offices in Melbourne Avenue, March, on Wednesday, October 24, and is suitable for anyone working in an environment where food is prepared, cooked or handled.
The course is delivered by the council's experienced environmental health officers, who carry out food hygiene inspections across Fenland.
Attendees will receive the latest food safety updates as well as advice and guidance from the Food Standards Agency on how to achieve and maintain the highest food hygiene ratings. Other topics will include how to prevent food poisoning, effective cleaning of food premises and the importance of effective hand washing.
The training course costs £40 per person and can be booked online at: www.fenland.gov.uk/foodtraining
Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance which is recognised as suitable training for employees who work in the food/catering sector and acknowledged during food safety inspections.
