Food hygiene training videos for caterers

By 26. June 2012Blog, Health, Quality, Taste

The Food Standards Agency has published 10 short videos to help caterers produce food safely. Each video is about a minute long and covers specific food hygiene practices. These training resources are designed to illustrate messages within the ‘Safer food, better business’ packs and they follow the same innovative and practical approach to food safety management as the packs.

The videos provide best practice guidance on a number of potential food safety issues, such as:

• effective handwashing
• chilling foods down as quickly as possible
• checking that foods are cooked thoroughly
• effective cleaning
• what to do if a member of staff is ill at work
• keeping pests out of your business, what to look for and the action to take

The films are being used as part of a training programme, funded by the Agency, to coach catering businesses in Olympic host boroughs in order to help raise standards and compliance levels.

The videos are available via the Agency’s YouTube channel.
