What is the care certificate standard 8 - fluids & nutrition?

This care certificate standard 8 covers fluids and nutrition and food safety for healthcare and social care providers.

What is food hygiene?

Food hygiene are the conditions and measures necessary to ensure the safety of food from production to consumption. Food can become contaminated at any point during slaughtering or harvesting, processing, storage, distribution, transportation and preparation.

What is food safety?

Food safety is a scientific discipline describing handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent food-borne illness. This includes a number of routines that should be followed to avoid potential health hazards.

Why is this care certificate standard 8 course important?

It is essential for health and social care providers to observe the core principles of food hygiene and food safety. What we eat is vital to our health and well-being and how we look, feel and function. It is important that people have a diet that is safe to eat and has all the nutrients they need.

Food safety is essential when preparing and handling food. Not all substances and objects that can cause harm or illness can be seen. This means that people can become ill from eating food that tastes normal and looks safe. Whether you occasionally make someone a snack such as a sandwich, or are regularly involved in preparing meals, you should always make sure that the food is safe to eat.
