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.
