Course overview

Remember that scene in Ghostbusters when Egon warned Pete not to cross the energy streams that they used to hoover up ghosts? It was only a small thing, but it could have led to disastrous consequences. In the world of food safety, we’re not talking about energy streams but a contaminant-infested equivalent. If you cross-contaminate, you’re liable to unleash something even more deadly than the Stay Puft Marshmallow man. It’s no laughing matter.

Learning objectives:

  • Define the four types of cross-contamination
  • Identify the 3 main ways cross-contaminiation can occur
  • Demonstrate safe working practices to reduce the risk of cross-contamination
  • Explain the benefits of a HACCP plan
