Course Description

What’s It About?

Food businesses must, by law, ensure that all employees receive the appropriate level of safety and hygiene training commensurate with their role and risk. This Level 3 Food Safety for Manufacturing course meets all legal requirements for supervisors within a food manufacturing business.

Implementing the knowledge gained from this food safety training course will improve food safety within your business.

Who’s It For?

This online course is indispensable if you are the manager/supervisor of a small, medium or large food manufacturing business. The course is particularly relevant for those who have to develop or monitor Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) based on food safety management procedures and systems.

However, if you are a food handler working within a food manufacturing business below the supervisor or manager level, we would recommend our Level 2 Food Safety for Manufacturing eLearning course.

  • Introduction to food safety.
  • Legislation.
  • Applying and monitoring good hygiene practices.
  • Temperature control.
  • Workplace and equipment design.
  • Waste disposal, cleaning and disinfection.
  • Pest control.
  • Personal hygiene for staff.
  • Contribution to staff training.
  • Implementing food safety management procedures.
  • Food safety auditing.

How Long Does It Take?

The course will typically take 10 – 12 hours to complete. However, as this food safety training is hosted online, candidates can complete each module at a pace to suit them.

Who Is It Accredited By?

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

How Does It Work?

Our eLearning programmes are available on multiple platforms such as tablets, PCs, Macs and laptops. All you need is an Internet connection. Candidates log on to the Learner Management System and work their way through the course. Included in the course are scenarios that provide them with real-life context.

How’s It Assessed?

Once you have completed the programme, you will be required to take an online test. This consists of a 40 question multiple-choice test, of which 30 questions must be answered correctly to achieve a pass.

You will receive an electronic copy of your certificate immediately upon completion of the course. This certificate may be printed and used as evidence that you have been trained in food safety and hygiene to the appropriate level.

Please Note

This online course alone does not provide a qualification. However, it does meet the UK’s mandatory training requirements for food handlers.

If you wish to achieve the recognised Level 3 Award in Food Safety in Manufacturing qualification, you must sit an invigilated examination. This can be achieved by the Quality at Home service – please call us for further details.
