Food Safety Training

Everybody really enjoyed the course. The staff have more confidence with increased knowledge. They are displaying more interest in their work having been on the curse. There is more awareness particularly of ready to eat foods and high risk foods - particularly rice.

The programme gives you confidence that you are handling safe food. In the event of an inspection you are confident that you are abiding by the law. We have found  the programme to be user friendly and it has now become second nature.

Recommend the programme. Common sense became a reality – food safety isn’t so difficult. Brought sense to our daily practice. Helped put onus on employees.

Supervisory skills training

Dermot Ahern and the Mid West Food Safety Co. have been responsible for training and development in the area of HACCP/Food Hygiene/Supervisory Skills for our organization for the past nine years. During this time we have experienced an overall improvement in skills, in knowledge and attitude with regard to food safety.

We are very please with the professional service we are receiving and are delighted to recommend Dermot and the Mid West Food Safety Co.

 The supervisors relish that they have the necessary tools to carry out their job. They now know that they are the supervisors and have developed the ability to follow through with their teams. In particular we have seen an improvement in the quality of our weekly meetings and the sharing of information throughout the organisation.

Food Safety Training

It went very well the staff came back full of enthusiasm and brimming with ideas. Much more attention being paid to the cleaning schedule, hand washing and handling of product.

The two managers have a better understanding of what they are doing.  They are spending more time with the staff and demonstrating clearly how the procedures are carried out.  Employees are being supervised and as a result we are saving time whilst seeing standards improve.

Supervisory skills training

Our supervisor has managed to take over a very busy position successfully without extra expense incurred on our part. We have seen attention to detail and a major change in the supervisor’s ability to transfer her work ethos to others. Developing teams has worked for us. An excellent course, highly recommended.

The programme was tailor made to suit our company. We now have a blueprint for our management structure - to focus our organisation on customer service and our bottom line. It has been money well spent and has impacted well.

We found Dermot Ahern to be highly flexible in responding to our needs. I would be delighted to recommend this programme.

Less mistakes are being made on assembly. We were going back to customers on average 3 times per week and we had to replace product as well.

The layout of the store is more efficient.

There is better communication

Singland Motors

The standard of how they were taught was extremely high (excellent) and what they learnt they have put into practice.  Even with the language barrier they understood, took in and put into practice what was taught.  It was not a waste of time.  I would say it was brilliant.

- Geraldine-, Owner

 

Gleesons

I have seen an improvement in the standards week by week.

- Angelica- Manager

Much more comfortable with my supervision.  I am spending a lot more time explaining the procedures to the staff.
