Health and Safety Elearning for Hospitality and Catering

Course overview

Health and Safety is important in all workplace environments, but we know the hospitality and catering environments present a unique set of risks.

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.

This 195-minute Health & Safety for Hospitality & Catering training is made up of four bitesize modules; Roles & Responsibilities, Risks, Hazards and Incidents & Accidents.

You'll learn 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.
