Catering Health & Safety Services

Hygiene and safety cannot be ignored in a food business. Keeping your staff and customers safe and happy is essential to the health of your business. Whether you are a single site catering operation, or a multi-site catering business, In House can provide a range of services to help you.

Established in 1991, In House has experience of working with a huge range of caterers, and we provide tailored solutions to the issues which you face. If you are a contract caterer, we have experienced advisors to help with food safety and health and safety systems, helping you to work with your client and look after your customers. We can help with mobilisation, new site audits and provide emergency support when required.

Food Safety for Caterers

As a food business, you have to comply with food hygiene regulations. Poor food hygiene carries a heavy cost for your organisation – in terms of health, profits, staff and reputation. So how can you be sure your food handling practices and procedures are up to scratch?

In House has a range of services to help you get them right, either by helping you set up your procedures from the start, or by checking that what you are currently doing is correct.

We can:

  • Development of food safety systems (your food safety manual), or reviewing existing ones
  • Audits and inspections
  • Training: On site and public courses, CIEH, HABC and bespoke courses
  • BIOSCANNING hygiene monitoring
  • Food sampling and allegation support
  • On-going support and advice – newsletters and updates

Throughout your service period we’re always on hand to answer any question about food safety or hygiene. Whether you have a minor query or a major crisis, we’re only a phone call or email away.

Catering Health & Safety

The health and safety of everyone who works, visits or even delivers to a catering business is paramount. There are obvious risks in catering due to the nature of the work, but health and safety legislation requires your business to assess all the risks.

  • Development of Safety Management Systems
  • Risk assessments
  • Training – accredited or bespoke
  • Safety Support service
  • Accident investigations
  • Fire safety and fire risk assessments



BIOSCANNING is a monitoring system that can detect the presence of bacteria and food residues on any surface in your kitchen or food preparation area. The results reveal whether your cleaning methods are really working.

What does the BIOSCANNING service include? 

  • Regular visits (usually 3-4 times per year)
  • Equipment swabs – of chopping boards, knives, handles etc
  • Results available within seconds
  • Advice and guidance on achieving targets
  • Report left on site for immediate action by manager
  • Written report within 14 days for files
