There are many Food Hygiene posters available that cover specific topics, such as chopping board use or hand washing and as such, we’ve kept away from this style.
We’ve designed our Food Hygiene Poster to let staff know what the consequences may be if they get things wrong and to remind them of some of the basic hygiene practices that keep food safe.
The food-safe zones and danger zones are clearly displayed with pictograms and there is another showing the importance of hand washing.
Shockingly there was a massive number of fines totalling over £10,000,000.00 within the food industry in the last five-year period from 2010 to 2015.
The largest single fine was £316,000.00, so the need to keep staff on their toes about food hygiene and food safety is paramount.
Of course, this Food Hygiene Poster isn’t about avoiding financial penalties, but about getting the job done the right first time and keeping customers safe. Yet unfortunately, all too often if things do go wrong the hard hand of the Law is ready to pounce.
Our Food Hygiene Poster is no substitute for adequate training, but it serves as a great reminder of some key points that keep food safe.
