The main reasons for food poisoning are poor food management and bad hygiene practice. By developing food hygiene measures and increasing our knowledge of proper food handling, the risk of food poisoning can be greatly reduced.

There are many reasons to enforce strict regulations concerning the spread of infection. This course will increase carers' knowledge of infection risks and how to minimise them.


The learning objectives are as follows:

  • To understand the importance of food hygiene and what it means
  • To be aware of the importance of healthy eating and maintaining food in hygienic conditions
  • To learn about contamination hazards and control
  • To understand what communicable diseases are
  • To be aware of infection, modes of transmission, and implications 
  • To understand the general principles of infection control
  • To understand personal healthcare and hygiene procedures
  • To know the legislation affecting infection control and communicable diseases

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
