Level 2 Food Safety in Retail

Why’s It Important?

If your staff work in a retail environment where frozen, chilled and hot food display counters are available, you have a legal obligation to ensure they receive food safety training appropriate to their job role. It is especially relevant for counter assistants, shop assistants and delivery drivers.

Your employees must have a clear understanding of food safety law and the powers of enforcement. They should also know what to do to prevent the risk of prosecution.  Furthermore, it is your responsibility to ensure they gain the knowledge and the skills required.

People who have eaten food which has been contaminated by poor food practices are at risk of suffering from the effects of food poisoning bacteria, with symptoms such as diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and stomach cramps. Some of these people may even die.

Failing to comply with these regulations can carry heavy penalties in the way of fines, poor staff morale, loss of business, a bad reputation and possibly even imprisonment.

What Will You Gain?

By attending this Level 2 Food Safety in Retail course, your employees will know how to identify and report key food safety issues.

In addition, they will also know how to prevent contamination and keep themselves and your premises clean. They will also learn how to maintain stock control processes effectively.

On returning to the workplace, they will understand the principles of a food safety management system. They will also have the expertise and confidence to ensure that food they sell to customers is safe to eat.
