It is a requirement of the Food Hygiene Regulations that food businesses "ensure that food handlers engaged in the food business are supervised and instructed and/or trained in food hygiene matters commensurate with their work activity."
The official industry guides, which give advice on complying with the regulations, say that;
"A food handler who prepares or handles high-risk open food should be trained to at least level 1 standard"
"it is good practice for those food handlers who not only handle high-risk foods but also have supervisory or management responsibilities to be trained to at least level 2 & managers to level 3"
It is also recommended that food handlers undergo regular refresher training at least once every 3 years.
