Just a couple of quick ideas. 


I guess you have some sort of document like a Hygiene Code of Practice that covers all the rules and procedures. Maybe this is issued to new starters and apart from that does not see the light of day.  Break it down into a presentation and deliver as a refresher.  If any internal, customer or audit NC’s are caused by a lapse in any area highlight this with real life examples.


Once I made a presentation with couple of charts (graphs) at the beginning with customer complaints and internal defects.  Then one by one the presentation addressed each issue, what the problem was, what problems it can cause the customer/consumer or the company, the root cause of the problem and what operators can do to prevent the problem.  It was a meaningful refresher.  Generated lots of discussion and opportunities for improvement.


I believe training that is related to work is more interesting for the trainees and ultimately more effective.


Hope this gets you thinking.

Sorry late to the party.  Variety is the spice of life and here is very important. I have been presenting for 10 years.  At first it was the same thing year after year.  But in time I was getting bored of it as well, I am sure my audience was going crazy.  I came up with new presentations and mixed in audience participation, short videos and comics relief.  I, like Simon try and present from our company standpoint rather than generic information. But everything is related to food safety and GMPs.
