A Recipe for Safety: HSG252

Posted on the 23rd of March 2015 in News & Views

Interested in Food Safety? Then this is for you: Originally published in 2005, the HSE's latest document,  'A Recipe for Safety' is a 2015 revision of a 'one-stop-shop' set of industry guidelines for everyone operating within consumables.

Aimed at everyone from managers and directors, to workers, supervisors and health and safety personnel, this up-to-date document is designed to help everyone working with food and drink to adhere to best practice and safe legislative guidelines. The guidance makes reference to the main health and safety hazards within the food and drink industry, as well as offering practical advice on managing major workplace risks.

With a diverse set of work environments sitting beneath the broad umbrella of 'food and drink', this handy document offers a resource which acts both as a quick reference index, as well as a gateway to more detailed legislative information (through a comprehensive list of links to the relevant master documents.)

Whether your area of operation is manufacture (bakeries, meat and poultry processing, or grain milling/animal feeds) or distribution, 'A Recipe for Safety' is well worth a look: You can access the full document here.

With many of our partners operating across food and drink manufacture and distribution, we are pleased to offer a number of online training courses aimed at promoting best practice as well as legal compliance. You can take a closer look at these programmes by clicking on the following links: Food Safety and Hygiene Level 1, Food Safety and Hygiene Level 2, Food Allergen Training.
