Tip of the Week

As many hospitality businesses are closed and others are open on a reduced scale providing a takeaway/delivery service, it is the ideal time to update your staff training. Especially as training is permitted for any furloughed team members. Training will help keep your team motivated and up to date.

We recommend :–

  • Level 2 Food Safety Certification – check if all your staff have an up-to-date certificate. A refresher course is needed every three years. There are many reasonably priced online providers so your team can take the course remotely at home.
  • HACCP Refresher – Use Zoom to take your team though a practical HACCP refresher course. Base this on your food safety system (Use Section 2 of the Food Safety Guru Manual).
  • Allergen Training – In October 2021 the Allergen Regulations are tightening along with the requirement to label all point of sale packaged foods. As with Food Safety, there are many reasonable priced online providers for Allergen Aware courses.
  • COVID Procedures – Use Zoom to take your team though a reminder of your COVID procedures.  Update your team on your COVID Risk Assessments and Procedures – Kitchen, Delivery and Front of House – (you can use Section 10 of the Food Safety Guru Manual).


Don’t forget that training keeps your team engaged. Share knowledge, inspire and motivate.
