The PPS penned a lengthy article based on a PPS Subscriber’s observations of caterer’s non-compliance at an event where an outside caterer was contracted and hairnets were not worn by the catering personnel. Salient points to note:
- Caterers should produce a Trading Licence
- Adherence to Health & Safety regulations is essential
Although it could be argued that compliance does not include private functions – the definition of ‘private’ may be a moot point. It is worthy to bear in mind that guests who can pinpoint the catering as the cause of their food-poisoning are likely to have good reason for litigation based on hair-net non-compliance irrespective of whether ‘private’ or otherwise.
