Simple Safety in Food and Drink

Image from the 'Falling Objects' data sheet

Whether you run a pub, coffee shop or delicatessen, health and safety should be on your "to do" list. Our Simple Safety toolkit will help you protect yourself, your employees and your customers.

The toolkit is made up of Simple Safety Data Sheets - hand these out to your staff or put on your notice board. These data sheets outline in very basic terms the key issues to watch out for.

If you want to make things more formal, ask each employee to sign and date the data sheet so that you have a central record of everyone's participation. It's your responsibility as the owner/manager to ensure that your employees are safety aware.
