Tip of the Week
Are you ready for an Environmental Health Inspection?
Your Environmental Health Inspection is split into three main headings and you need to score highly in all three areas to achieve/retain a Level 5 Food Hygiene Rating. Here is a reminder of the three areas:–
Compliance with Food Hygiene and Safety Procedures
How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, cooled, stored and what measures are taken to prevent food being contaminated.
Compliance with Structural Requirements
The condition of the structure of the premises including cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation, equipment and other facilities.
Confidence in Management
Your Food Safety HACCP system. Are you up to date with the latest legislation and best practice? Is all your paperwork accurate and up to date? Are you demonstrating that you do what you say you do?
Keep your HACCP documentation up to date and your staff well trained.
