Your Restaurant
compliance pack

Introducing the all-in-one solution to simply manage Food Safety and Health & Safety in your restaurant or bar.

Safety made simple

Running a restaurant comes with its fair share of challenges – and managing safety is just one of them. We believe in making safety simple, which is why we have put together all the ‘must-haves’ for you.

The whole package

With your Restaurant Compliance Pack, all elements of managing Food and Health & Safety are covered – from written policies to on hand support from a team of experts – to ensure you’re legally compliant.

From the front to the back

Struggling to get everyone on board to manage safety? With our approach, all colleagues in your restaurant are involved in embedding a safety culture, from the front to back of house.

Improve your rating

A low FHRS score can be seriously damaging for your business. With effective practices and procedures in place for managing compliance, your Food Hygiene Rating will help to improve or maintain your high standards.

What’s included?

As the No. 1 choice for the hospitality sector, we understand how complex managing safety in a restaurant or bar can be. Your Restaurant Compliance Pack has been designed specifically to simplify the whole process.

Frequently asked questions

New to managing Food Safety and Health & Safety? Or looking to streamline your current practices and procedures? This pack is just what you’ve been looking for. Here are some of our most common queries so you can find out more.

Am I legally required to have a Restaurant Compliance Pack?

As a food serving business, you are required by the law to have a Food Safety Management System in place. If you employ more than 5 people, you are also required to have a written Health & Safety Management System. The other components of the pack are not legally required; however, they act as due diligence evidence that you are following your policies, provide a support network from experienced EHPs and ensure you’re following best practice and maintaining legal compliance.

Will I be deemed compliant through purchasing a Restaurant Compliance Pack?

Your Restaurant Compliance Pack provides you with everything to ensure you are compliant. Within your pack are the tools you need to bring your operating procedures in line with not only the law but also industry best practice. Solely having the pack is not enough, though. It is your responsibility to ensure you read the policies thoroughly, implement them and show you continue to follow them by recording evidence in the Compliance Diaries in addition to following our ongoing advice.

I use Safer Food, Better Business – am I covered already?

Safer Food, Better Business (SFBB) is a great resource and certainly helps businesses with their Food Safety due diligence. Your Restaurant Compliance Pack goes further than this to offer more well-rounded protection. It also includes a Health & Safety provision that is not covered in SFBB. You’ll receive the most up-to-date policies, regular on-site reviews from our team of EHPs and a support network from the Safety Advice Line. You’ll also save money on printing costs with our Diaries, never lose a vital record again and more!

I’m interested in a Restaurant Compliance Pack, what’s the next step?

Simply request a call back and one of our friendly advisors will ring you to talk you through the process of signing up and answer any questions you might have about any of the products.

I already have some elements of a Restaurant Compliance Pack in place, can I buy components separately?

Yes, all items within your Restaurant Compliance Pack are available separately. It’s fantastic that your business already has things in place, and we’d be happy to discuss any additional compliance needs you may have. We can even provide you with an on-site ‘health check’ to assess the current compliance in your restaurant and highlight areas of improvement or review your current policies.

Been awarded a low Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) score?

We can help with that too.

A low ‘score on the door’ can be damaging to your business. In fact, a mighty 68% of consumers consider the ratings before choosing where to eat. Our unique FHRS Re-visit Service – available as an add-on to your Restaurant Compliance Pack – will support you through the re-rating process, including case management of the local authority action plan and on-site coaching visits to ensure issues have been resolved.

Mandatory display of FHRS stickers is coming soon to the UK… there’s no better time to start getting ready.


Flaming Cow purchased a Restaurant Compliance Pack to ensure high standards were maintained across their two sites, along with the FHRS Re-visit add-on after one site was awarded a FHRS score of 1 due to out of date documentation.

“I would absolutely recommend Shield Safety, especially to any company looking to build its foundations or streamline operations. Working with them enables businesses to make the prevention of issues part of the day-to-day operating procedures, rather than just dealing with them when they come in.”

Tarek Elawadi, Director

Not only that, the site was re-rated – rising from a Food Hygiene Rating Scheme score of 1 to a 5!
