The Training Express specializes in many professional training programs, food safety included. However, food safety can be quite a hard thing to get right for your business. If you fear that your business might fall foul of the Food Safety Act 1990, then it’s important that you do everything you can to rectify the issue.
When running a business in the hospitality industry, your most common problem will relate to your most important product: food. Serving someone the wrong kind of food or beverage is a problem: serving someone uncooked or poorly managed food is an offence. Often, it’s easy for a business to fall foul of the Food Safety Act 1990. If you would like to avoid this, then we recommend that you consider the following.
These tips should help you to guarantee higher food safety standards.
Prepare a constant cleaning schedule
The first thing that you should do is organize a clear and professional cleaning schedule. Have a regular cleaning program that takes into account personal hygiene for staff, cleaning for the entire premises, equipment cleaning and maintenance, waste disposal and pest control.
You should look to bring in specialist assistance to help your staff become more aware of each of these disciplines. If everyone works together on this, though, you are much more likely to create an automated cleaning solution that puts nothing at risk.
Ensure you label everything correctly
A common mistake within the industry is to make a crucial mistake when it comes to the safe labeling of all of your items. We recommend that everything goes through a strict labeling process: train all staff in correct labeling, but make sure you have two or three senior staff who take their time to check and audit all labels.
This is much more likely to help reduce problems like allergic reactions in your customers.
Maintain clear records at all times
Thanks to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) brought in by the European Union, data protection standards are increasing. We recommend that you spend some time looking at training your staff on safe record keeping.
From staff and client records to stock records, you should do everything you can to modernize this part of your business. This goes a long way to creating a forward-thinking and modern business that moves with the times. Data protection and data accuracy are very important parts of running a hospitality business in 2019: don’t forget that.
Undergo food safety training
Of course, we fully endorse the decision to undergo a food safety training program. We have numerous food safety course for you to use at the Training Express and would recommend that you do so as soon as is possible: such courses could solve many problems.
Food safety training is very easy to get right with our help. It does, though, need you to put in the work and effort to then put in place whatever you learn with us. If you do that, though, you will be much more likely to avoid any food-related issues.
