Staff should stay at home if they have acute diarrhoea and in particular, if E. coliO157 infection has been diagnosed.
An essential prerequisite of any food safety system is adequate staff training. Processors are required by law to ensure that staff who handle food are supervised and instructed and/or trained in food hygiene matters commensurate with their work activities.
All staff working in a food business should be given a basic level of formal hygiene training. There should be a continual process of food safety education in the workplace.
