Managers, supervisors and other members of staff should be able to recognise the hazards posed by their work, be able to take action to reduce or eliminate the risks and understand how to follow procedures.
Regardless of the UK's membership of the EU, the internationally recognised HACCP principles remain just as relevant and are vital to ensuring the highest safety standards in the food sector.
