Course Information and Details

Both food handlers and their employers have a legal duty to manage Food Safety. These obligations are set out by a number of EU and UK Laws.

These laws state that food handlers must make sure that food which is prepared, cooked, served or sold, is safe for human consumption. Failing to follow food safety standards can cause food to become contaminated with potentially fatal consequences.

Training your employees with our food safety course will go a long way to giving them greater awareness of the dangers that poor food safety standards pose, as well as covering how food safety risks actually arise and how to control and prevent them.

This particular course focuses on the Catering sector, but we also have other versions of this course for the Manufacturing and Retail sectors
