Depending on your business size, you may need one or more Food Safety Supervisors.

A key legal requirement of a Food Safety Supervisor is that they are reasonably available at all times to:

· Monitor and prevent hazards in the workplace

· Supervise food handling staff

· Deal with food safety emergencies and unexpected health inspections
