Every year in the UK there are over 90,000 confirmed incidents of bacterial food poisoning; therefore, it is imperative that food safety and hygiene procedures are strictly adhered to. This is particularly important in the social care environment as older residents tend to have weaker immune systems and are subsequently more prone to food related infections. Following the HACCP model provided by the Food Standards Agency, this care home based DVD intends to build a good foundation for your understanding of the topic, and is an essential item for training.

Subjects covered include:

Introduction • Personal Hygiene • Protective Clothing • Staff Health • Food Handling and Preparation • Cooking • Food Storage and Temperature Control • Cleaning and Disinfection • Refuse • Pets and Pest Control • Food Safety Management System • Kitchen Access • Conclusion - Essential Points

Duration: 33 Minute DVD in 13 sections to be used in a suggested 4 hour training session.
