Health & Safety Elearning for Hospitality and Catering

Health and Safety is important in all workplace environments, but we know the hospitality and catering environments present a unique set of risks. In order to prepare your staff for this, we have created EssentialsPlus Health & Safety for Hospitality and Catering.


Course Overview

Most workplace risks can be avoided through management and supervision, combined with effective training for employees. Implemented properly, these elements can help to reduce costs and wasted time and effort for businesses. In addition, having these processes in place will help your organisation demonstrate to enforcement officers that you are compliant with health and safety legislation.

Our EssentialsPlus Health & Safety for Hospitality and Catering training will improve your employees' knowledge about how to handle incidents and accidents within the workplace and how to identify risks and hazards. It will also explain the roles and responsibilities that exist when working within a Hospitality and Catering environment. The module is made up of four bitesize sections; Roles and Responsibilities, Risks, Hazards and Incidents and Accidents.

The end assessment for each section consists of randomly selected multiple choice questions. If learners don’t meet the 100% pass rate, they will be taken back through the specific areas that they have struggled with using our Guided Revision functionality.
