The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) has launched a new series of one-day seminars on food safety risk assessments.
The seminars are open to pub businesses and will include a review of the latest legislation, and the principles behind carrying out risk assessments of premises.
The seminars come as central government continues to place pressure on local authorities to tighten up on food safety regulations and increase checks on premises including pubs.
The HACCP and hazard analysis systems include a seven-step plan to help licensees carry out a full risk assessment under the Food Safety (General Food Hygiene) Regulations 1995.
In the event of a customer complaint or inspection by the local authority, the HACCP can be used as evidence of good practice.
John Barrow, an HACCP expert who will be addressing the seminars, said: "There are strong indications that the government will further strengthen the requirement for businesses to demonstrate a fully documented system and periodic review."
