How to comply with the Food Information Regulations (FIR) 2014
December 2014 is when the Regulations (FIR) came into force - it's all about having allergen controls in the business and the communication of allergen information to consumers.
We can provide businesses with our popular half day Food Allergen training session, to help you and your staff understand how to comply with the FIR Regulations.
In any type of care service it is very important that all aspects of Health & Safety, Food Safety, Nutrition and Hygiene/Infection Control are managed effectively. Accidents can happen in seemingly the most innocent of situations, whilst the health and wellbeing of your service users can be compromised by failing to ensure that you have adequate procedures in place.
The elderly, the very young and those who are ill are among the groups particularly at risk from food poisoning and the spread of infection. For these vulnerable groups the result of either poor food hygiene standards or infection control can lead to illness, long term disability or even fatalities. The law says that health and social care services must meet essential standards.
We offer a range of training courses for managers and staff working in the private, voluntary and independent health and social care sectors, such as care homes, hospitals and nurseries.
Some of our courses are nationally accredited by the Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance. In addition we offer a range of tailor-made courses that help provide staff with the knowledge and skills to provide high quality care. The courses are designed to meet and/or exceed the requirements of the National Care Standards, the refreshed Common Induction Standards and organisations such as the Care Quality Commission.
If you are not sure what type or level of training would be suitable or you can't find what you are looking for we are happy to discuss your requirements and tailor a course that suits the needs of your organisation. We know it can be difficult for businesses in this sector, particularly in the current climate to address staff training needs, which is why we offer cost effective, flexible training that is user friendly, fits in with the business and supports your due diligence.
