Food hygiene training

Every year there is a large number of reported cases of food poisoning. Apart from the personal implications of serious illness or even death, the owners of premises implicated in food poisoning will lose time and business.

Food handlers who contravene food legislation may be prosecuted and an outbreak of food poisoning could cost the companies responsible thousands of pounds in damage claims.

Training encourages owners and staff to adopt efficient, cleaner, safer practices and explains the reasons these are necessary.

At present St Albans City and District Council have suspended the Food Hygiene Training Courses until further notice.  It is hoped that our face to face food hygiene training courses will resume later in the year. Businesses can still obtain hygiene training for their food handlers from other providers.  During the Coronavirus pandemic online training courses are available – please see for details of elearning provided by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.
