Portreath Surf Life Saving Club Kitchen Policy and protocol
Kitchen use policy Policy shows that we have considered food safety legislation!
Induction and recording Food safety guidelines will be adhered to at all times by volunteers to ensure the safety and well-being of club members and the general public. Volunteers are required to have read; asked appropriate questions; and understood the information contained within the Food Standards Agency: Safer food, better business for caterers folder as part of induction training – copies can be made available for this purpose, please ask an executive committee member. Volunteers will have a guided explanation of general kitchen use and storage from a nominated executive committee member before commencement of food preparation. Volunteers are required to sign the relevant forms within folder under ‘staff training’ when they have received basic induction training. Volunteers with Food Safety Qualifications will provide a copy of their certificate for inclusion in folder. Diary entries; cleaning schedule; ordering of foodstuffs; delivery and recording of suppliers will be overseen by club operations manager. The responsible person opening the kitchen on each session is required to complete opening and closing checks and must complete diary entry for that day.
Operational conditions Food safety guidelines will be adhered to at all times by volunteers to ensure the safety and well-being of club members and the general public.
