Visitor Management for Food Handling


Utilise visitor management solutions strategically


  • Accurately manage the visitors and contractors that attend your food premises
  • Ensure that mandatory Health & Safety questionnaires are answered
  • Record and provide an accurate audit trail
  • Protect your business from risk and comply with the law


Food handling is one of the most heavily regulated sectors placing clear Health & Safety responsibilities on employers and managers alike.

The law requires “…the exclusion of anyone from entering the workplace if they have an infection that can be passed on through food and there is any likelihood of them contaminating food either directly or indirectly.” And this applies to both employees and visitors to site.

So when you consider that food businesses also have a duty of care to vet and report who’s on site at any one time, a watertight management system for all types of visitor is vital if you are to comply with the law.

Health & Safety legislation, unlike conventional English law, requires you to prove your innocence, so the implications of getting things wrong are serious. So how can you comply with the regulations and keep on the right side of the law?

We work closely with you to tailor the right solution for your sites and specific needs. We can do this because we are the only company in the UK to supply the complete range of Visitor Management, Control of Contractors and Staff ID and Access Solutions, including software and print.
