What is food hygiene?

Food hygiene refers to the conditions and measures necessary to ensure the safety of food from production to consumption. Food can become contaminated at any point during slaughtering or harvesting, processing, storage, distribution, transportation and preparation.

What is food safety?

Food safety is a scientific discipline describing handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent foodborne illness. This includes several routines that should be followed to avoid potential health hazards.

Why is this care certificate standard 8 training course important?

It is essential for health and social care providers to observe the core principles of food hygiene and food safety. What we eat is vital to our health and well-being and how we look, feel and function. People must have a diet that is safe to eat and has all the nutrients they need.

Food safety is essential when preparing and handling food. Not all substances and objects that can cause harm or illness can be seen. This means that people can become ill from eating food that tastes normal and looks safe. Whether you occasionally make someone a snack such as a sandwich or are regularly involved in preparing meals, you should always make sure that the food is safe to eat.
