Usually someone in the team has to have the hygiene certificate (which is covered in the training for the qualifications I linked to) but it is not essential for everyone to hold it.
There should be a
for the establishment which outline its practices in these matters:
This is the responsibility of the owner, and there should be a section on how the plan is made known to the staff and monitored.
So I don't think that you necessarily have to have the certificate.
All that of course is in the ideal.
It may well be that the owner has no idea, no-one has the certificate, and there is no plan in place..
In that case it could be up to you. If it is you should be given the training at the owner's expense
The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.
