Resources


Materials from a number of sources have been gathered to support your learning.  These will be of particular value if you work in a personalised service and have difficulty attending face-to-face training or where no e-learning alternative is available.  These materials can also be used as additional information for courses you have completed.

However these materials do not replace courses which are essential training for your job.  If you are unclear about what else you need to become knowledgeable in any topic you should seek the advice of your line manager or Training and Development Officer.

Effective Handwashing

The Food Standards Agency in Scotland has developed a handwashing film, which demonstrates an effective way to wash hands and eliminate potentially harmful bacteria.  At any one time, there can be millions of germs on your hands, although these are far too small to be seen by the naked eye. Some of these are harmful to health and when spread to food can cause food poisoning.
 

They can, however, be eliminated with an effective hand washing technique. This film demonstrating this technique can be accessed via the link on the right.
