This course will provide information on the standards required to ensure high standards of personal hygiene in you working environment.

By the end of this e-learning course you will have a greater awareness of why personal hygiene is important and the requirement to maintain high standards of personal hygiene in your working environment.

Most people carry some type of food poisoning organism at one time or another. Because our body temperature is 37°C, it is ideal for the growth of most food poisoning organisms.

It is therefore very important to take care with personal hygiene, and particularly to keep hands clean at all times and avoid habits which could cause contamination when preparing food.
Food handlers have a moral and legal responsibility to observe high standards of personal cleanliness to ensure that you do not contaminate food.


The course is free and available at any time through our eLearning platform, OLLE.
