Pests are bad news in any food handling environment and can result in serious consequences if not managed appropriately. The effective management of your pest control contractor establishes a diligent approach and partnership, between the pest control provider and your business.
An industry standard professional qualification, such as the BPCA’s RSPH Level 2 Award in Pest Management, is advised if you are planning to become your own pest control/management provider. Whilst these courses are an excellent supplement, they shouldn’t be considered a substitute for an industry standard professional qualification.
