Food safety
signs are there to make workers aware of the dangers of food poisoning through cross contamination and the need to keep food safe to eat. The importance of washing hands before handling food and keeping a kitchen clean and tidy must be taken into consideration daily by anyone involved in the catering industry. Hot surfaces and cuts from knives are both causes of accidents and injuries in the food industry that can be avoided.

Whether you work in a staff canteen, kitchen, restaurant or general food production area, health and safety is an important part of your working day. We’ve produced a range of mandatory 
food hygiene signs to ensure a hygenic environment and a safe workplace for staff and customers alike for food catering businesses, restaurants, canteens, food retailers and manufacturers. 

We've produced a series of articles related to food safety.
