These courses have been developed because of popular demand and to address specific frequently asked questions.
This workshop offers an in-depth overview of HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) and its relationship to Good Catering Practices.
The training will be beneficial to those with exposure to hygiene systems in a catering/hospitality environment who wish to acquire a more in-depth, up-to-date understanding of HACCP.
Practical exercises and case studies will reinforce key points towards applying HACCP and Good Catering requirements. Opportunities for in-class discussions will address concerns, examples and improvements to current systems.
Food defence, biovigilance and bioterrorism have become a topic of great concern and discussion since the publication of PAS 220:2008 and the ISO/TS 22002-1:2009. PAS 96, is the publicly available standard that provides broad guidelines in order to assess and reduce the risk to the business and to relieve the effect of an attack should it happen.
ISO 14001:2004 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system that can be implemented by any organisation, irrespective of its activity or sector.
By adopting ISO 14001:2004 management, employees and external participants will be assured that the environmental impact is being measured and improved.
The course will provide an overview of ISO 14001:2004’s purpose and requirements.
This introductory training is interactive and incorporates visual examples that will create an understanding and buy-in towards successful implementation and maintenance of the system.
