Under this act, employers have a duty to ‘ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees’ and the premises.
The Licensing Act 2003

The four aims are to prevent crime and disorder, to promote public safety, to prevent public nuisance, and, to protect children from harm.

Critically, proof of appropriate practice and staff training are required by law. This legislation applies to all organisations handling food for human consumption.
