Catherine has advised and guided both The Kitchin Castle Terrace and Scran and Scallie restaurants for numerous years. She provides invaluable knowledge and extremely high standards in all aspects of health and safety in the work place. We would only be delighted to recommend Catherine to any new or existing businesses.

The Kitchin

Thank you so much for your help in training all of our staff on the REHIS courses and I've been told by everyone that attended how helpful and welcoming you were. I know how daunting these courses can be but everyone has commented on how you covered the course in detail with a constant supply of biscuits which helped them breeze through it all. I will certainly be sending all of our new starts to you as well as anyone that needs a refresher course.


Catherine was very supportive & informative with our company …I will definitely use Catherine again in the future for any Health & safety advice


Working for a busy 5 star company it has been a life line to have such a service available. The experience and knowledge of Catherine Hall and her team is second to non. I can only highly recommend them.


Catherine Hall Health &Safety (CHHS) have provided John A Smith & Son (Building Contractors) Ltd with a Health & Safety consultancy service for the past year and we have found them to be professional, knowledgeable, reliable and cost effective. Deadlines have consistently been achieved or bettered and CDM co-ordinators generally have been happy with their productions. Safety inspections have been completed diligently and accurately while still retaining the essential common sense required. Several in house training sessions have been very helpful and successful in developing our staffs' appreciation and understanding of current Health & Safety and CDM requirements.

We are very happy with the service provided and would have no hesitation in recommending Catherine and her team to everyone.

First Catering

We have used CHHS for years now and are very happy with the nice simple presentation style and entertaining way which Catherine delivers both elementary and Intermediate hygiene courses. She puts people at ease and includes our Polish workforce in the courses and we have had an excellent pass rate.

I would recommend using chhs for training, the feedback from my staff has been very positive, they found the tutor to be very knowledgeable, made the training easy to understand and in a relaxed atmosphere and added to that they have all passed Elementary Food Hygiene & Intermediate food Hygiene, especially with Intermediate Food Hygiene being a more difficult course to pass.

Holding the attention of 15 hardened Chefs for a full day of Food Hygiene Training is no mean achievement. Catherine Hall managed this with a combination of grisly tales from her days as an Environmental Health Officer, as well as a slick audio-visual presentation of the key facts. She carries the authority of someone with many years of experience in the field, and the knowledge that there was an exam at the end of the day certainly focussed minds.

We get very positive feedback from staff who have attended Catherines courses both BFH and Intermediate. We have used “chhs” for food hygiene training in English and Polish and had 100% pass rate up to now. Some of our staff have found the idea of sitting the IFH course pretty daunting as they have not studied for some time. Catherine has always provided friendly, personally tailored coaching and puts all aspects of the course into a work related context that is easier for staff to relate to.


We were looking for an approachable, friendly way to train our staff for Health and Safety and we were pleased by the comprehensive, entertaining way of Catherine’s teaching. We will definitively be using her services again. I am more than happy to recommend her consistent professionalism.

Professional and friendly service second to none.

I would say that I found the training experience very inspirational and motivating. I found yourself to be very encouraging of my ideas and strengths, particularly in relation to completing the course and the future. The course itself was at a steady but realistic pace so that everyone could keep up, and the variety of activities delayed any post lunch slumps!

Birchwood Highland

If the course or training is covered by CHHS we will look no further. Training is made interesting and is always made relevant using real experience and anecdotal evidence. Highly recommended.

Henshelwood's Fine Foods

CHHS has enabled our department to offer Elementary Food Hygiene courses as part of our mainstream adult learning programme for two years. Within that time we have offered 19 courses with 207 East Lothian residents achieving their certificates. CHHS provides a professional and learner centre approach with flexible delivery and access. We look forward to working CHHS in the future.

Adult learning development officer

We have used Catherine's great experience and wonderful teaching style in all our restaurants, Oloroso, Tony's Table and Roti and now in the Old Bake house. Her teaching style has helped our KP's to General Manager pass all the exams and more importantly understand and retain the information they have gained. I would recommend Catherine without a second thought for all your Food Hygiene Needs.


Catherine is always approachable, helpful, flexible and good to work with.

The Blamoral Hotel

Great training with lots of detail and memorable information. Catherine is always easy to talk to and get in touch.


I had the opportunity to meet Catherine back in 2013. I am pleased to say that I worked closely with Catherine to coordinate some of our Food Hygiene training and she was absolutely brilliant. Everyone who attended her training said she kept everyone engaged and kept the courses interesting. She is always up for some banter and you can truly recognize that she loves her work. I definitely look forward to working with Catherine again in future!!

Apex Hotels

I would highly recommend CHHS to anyone looking to train their staff in Food hygiene. Catherine from CHHS carried out an in-depth and informative course while maintaining peoples interest of the subject with her experience in the industry and all round passion for food safety, by far the best way for staff to take information on board.

Traverse Theatre

Informative, light hearted and lots of fun. You are always on hand even two and half years later to give advice and a kind ear. Highly recommended two thumbs up!

Chequers Revive

Catherine has helped MacSween achieve our goals in getting all of our production staff to elementary food hygiene or intermediate food hygiene level. The staff thoroughly enjoyed working with her and found her teaching style to be engaging and fun.


Edinburgh Napier University engaged CHHS to deliver Intermediate Food Hygiene Courses and an Advanced Food Hygiene Course. Staff who attended the courses commented on the how they were able to relate to the excellent training theory through Catherine’s wealth of experience and natural training style. She was able to help understanding through practical examples of her own work experience and made learning a fun and enjoyable experience for all. Thanks very much. We will use CHHS again.
