What if I train my staff and they leave?

Worse still what if you don’t train them and they stay??

All food businesses need to comply with Staff Training Program – 3.2.2 Clause 3 (1) 

 

To demonstrate the effectiveness of its training Program, a business must:

  • Document how the food business ensures staff have appropriate skills and knowledge in food safety and food hygiene (e.g. induction program, in-house or external courses) and keep corresponding records of training conducted. (e.g. training matrix or certificates),
  • Document the components of food safety and food hygiene training undertaken (e.g.cross-contamination between raw and cooked foods; temperature monitoring criteria, personal hygiene; cleaning and sanitising premises)
  • A business should also conduct a review of staff training needs and competencies on a regular basis (e.g. annually)

Restaurant cleaning cloths ‘pose health risk’

Restaurants and takeaways are using cleaning cloths contaminated with E coli, listeria and other potentially dangerous bacteria, a study by Health Protection Agency (HPA) has revealed

Cloths used to clean surfaces where food is prepared need to be changed regularly or thoroughly disinfected to prevent the growth of bacteria that can cause food poisoning,
Bacteria on uncleaned cloths can transfer to the hands of staff then on to work surfaces, equipment and utensils. 
Exposure to harmful bacteria can cause food poisoning … for some – particularly the very young, very old and pregnant women – it can have serious consequences. 
“The HPA plays an important role in monitoring the hygiene standards at commercial premises and these worrying findings should serve as a timely reminder to all caterers to ditch the dirty dishcloths and stick to disposable ones.”
