OK this is only indirectly employment related but I thought someone might be able to help. I'm applying for temp jobs with a catering agency and you have to complete this questionnaire on food hygiene in order to apply. Bit stuck on a few questions:

What should you do if you suffer from diarrhoea or vomiting?
a) Grin and bear it
b) Avoid eating solids
c) Be careful of touching food
d) Report it to your supervisor

You can prevent bacteria from mulitplying on foods by:
a) Removing all moisture from foods
b) Covering the food
c) Removing all fat from the food
d) Washing the food

Which of the following can be used as a disinfectant?
a) Detergent
b) Water at 56 deg C
c) Water at 65 deg C
d) Sanitiser

Food handlers failing to observe legal and personal hygiene requirements can be fined a maximum of:
a) £50 per offence
b) £1000 per offence
c) £200 per offence
d) £5000 per offence

A food handler must by law notify their employer if they suffer from:
a) Food poisoning
b) Flu
c) Headaches
d) Aids

Which of the following could you be prosecuted for under food law?
a) Swearing
b) Injuring a colleague
c) Smoking in the toilet
d) Wearing a dirty apron

Come on, who's to say whether some questionnaire an agency drew up is the definitive way to assess food hygiene awareness? With the diarrhoea one I'd say 'report it to your supervisor', but surely you should also be careful of touching food? And as for the ones on legality, I'd notify my employer if I had any of those conditions (except perhaps headaches!) and certaintly wouldn't consider commiting any of those offences in the workplace, legal or not. I've already done 14 other questions no problem and don't really see a problem in asking for a bit of help if its just to tick the agency's box.

Thanks to Aitch for the links by the way!

Well.. that was the answer so there was no real reason to ask, and if you have diarrhoea not only would you be careful, you would just plain not touch food, as whatever bug you have could be transfered. Also as you say it could be 2 answers as you can only answer one wouldnt that mean that you would just select the most obviouse?
