HYGIENIC MINIMUM

The mandatory basis for all workers in gastronomy  

Training Hygienic minimum is a course designed for those who want to work with food and carry out epidemiological important activities and need to acquire professional competence, because they are not trained in the field. The requirement of professional competence to work with food follows from the law and the employer cannot hire a person who is not professionally qualified. 

What are the epidemiologicaly important activities? 

These are all activities where it is extremely important to follow the principles of good manufacturing practice, as there is a risk of the spread of an infectious disease. The risk of the occurrence and spread of infection arises in case of non-compliance with HACCP or the principles of operating rules, non-compliance with the correct technological procedure of work (or food production), non-compliance with the principles of personal hygiene, etc. Epidemiologically important activities include, in addition to work in the food industry, also work in water treatment and operation of water supply facilities, in human body care facilities (barbershops and hairdressers, skin care, manicures, pedicures, in massage parlors), in the production of cosmetics, skin detergents and personal hygiene needs and in the manufacture of medicines.

The employee's ability to perform epidemiologicaly important activities 

Every single employee is required to prove their health and professional competence. Medical and professional competence are two different concepts. Medical fitness is proved by presenting a medical card, which is issued by a doctor on the basis of a work examination. Professional competence is proven by a certificate of education in the field. If you do not have a training in the field, it is necessary to obtain a certificate for the performance of epidemiologically important activities. 

What questions do the tests that take place before the examination board include?
