Health & Food Hygiene

February 23 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Hygiene can be twice the problem that bad water is, but the problem is easier to solve. Without hygiene instruction, clean water does not have the impact. Besides, the importance of food hygiene can be underlined when one realizes the consequences that can result if you are unaware of safe food preparation and cooking methods. Food handlers without training for basic food hygiene can carry out practices that lead to serious illness and court fines for a cooking establishment. We have developed an active participatory strategy method of teaching hygiene behaviors. The lessons build on each other and reinforce the proper hygiene behaviors. We address some of the vital guidelines of WHO, UNICEF, European Food Safety AuthorityUK Food Standards Agency‘s Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) program.

The topics covered in the course are as under:

  • Personal hygiene
  • Developing healthy habits
  • Children and safe cleaning practices
  • Sanitation and human health
  • Promoting cleanliness in the vicinity
  • Hazard analysis
  • Maintaining food preparation areas
  • Understanding potable water, safe food and healthy diet
