Training of employees starts from their first day working for the company, irrespective of their previous experience. All employees must receive an induction in accordance with the company procedure and may only work on their own once this has been completed.

Basic training includes:

  • Employee and Employer responsibilities
  • Health and Safety commitments
  • Notice Board Information
  • PPE
  • Personal Safety
  • Use of Equipment


  • C.O.S.H.H.
  • Manual Handling
  • Risk Assessments
  • Method Statements
  • Food Environments

New Horizon’s training programme has been written to industry standards and familiarises our staff to the principles and practises of cleaning effectively and safely. Food Hygiene Regulations state that businesses should demonstrate an effective cleaning programme and New Horizon makes sure that staff are trained effectively to satisfy this legal requirement.

  • Illness & Accident Reporting
  • Hygiene & Cleaning – The Foundations
  • Food Hygiene Hazards
  • Cleaning & Disinfection
  • Avoiding Cross-Contamination
  • Cleaning Practises
  • Waste Handling
  • Basic Pest Control
  • Personal Hygiene

Never have standards of hygiene in the food industry been so rigorously enforced – this poses problems for many food companies who now have to comply with the mass of both UK and EC legislation.

New Horizon is committed to the training and development of our staff because to us training is one of the key differences between success and failure.
