Food Hygiene - Scores on Doors

Food Hygiene

Business leaders say the Welsh government has not been vigorous enough in assessing the impact a new food hygiene law may have on food firms.

The Federation of Small Businesses is concerned "scores on the doors" ratings for restaurants and take-aways will be extended to producers and wholesalers.

Meanwhile, a consumer group is concerned food outlets could be given more time to appeal, delaying ratings.

Ministers say they will listen to views.

The new law is looking to build on a voluntary scheme, in which restaurants, takeaways and supermarkets in Wales display food hygiene ratings.

Businesses will be rated with a score between 0 and 5 - with 0 meaning urgent improvement is necessary and a 5 meaning hygiene standards are very good.

Ratings will have to be displayed in a prominent position or businesses will face a fine.

Firm Fined for breaching Work Equipment Regulations

MIB Manufacturing fined over Blaina factory injury

A south Wales company has been fined after a worker lost a finger tip while using an unguarded drill, says the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Vaughan Thomas, 21, of Caerphilly, was injured at MIB Manufacturing's factory in Blaina, Blaenau Gwent in April 2011.

The Cardiff-based company admitted breaching work equipment regulations at Abergavenny magistrates court.

It was fined £15,000 and ordered to pay costs of £9,947 and £3,000 in compensation to Mr Thomas.

Working at Heights

Fall whilst using a stepladder


Stepladders are widely used as a means for accessing out of reach areas and carrying out a range of work at height tasks. The range of ladders available gives potential falls from just off ground level to approximately 3 metres. Falls may be due to incorrect ladder selection or usage, incorrect positioning of the ladder, failure of the ladder, or a combination of these factors.

I think this course has improved my confidence a lot, it has been interesting and a huge learning experience for me. I think it was well worth giving up my half term for this, and would recommend it to others.
