Is your Workplace Safe?

Did you know that there are an estimated 1 million cases of food poisoning in the UK each year?

EU and UK regulations state that all food handlers must receive appropriate training in food safety practices relevant to their duties. However, having a good understanding of food safety practices is not only a legal requirement, it is also essential in protecting the health of both consumers and food handlers.
