Food Handling Program
Most health care, and residential care workers are involved in food handling, although many of us are not actually involved in the preparation. As we supply and supervise meals to the people in our care, and sometimes even feed them, it is important for all of us to know the basics. Then, we can help prevent, identify and treat complications that may arise from poor food handling practices, as often, our patients and clients are particularly vulnerable.
This program allows food handlers to be compliant with the legal requirements around food handling, related to health and hygiene, and is relevant to all levels of care staff.Learning Outcomes
