Food Safety Training Courses
Comply With Legislation. Improve Standards. Ensure Safe Food.
Food poisoning outbreaks have a devastating effect on people, businesses and society.
Every year millions of people suffer from the effects of food poisoning bacteria, with symptoms such as diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and stomach cramps. Some of these people may even die. Many will have eaten food contaminated by poor food hygiene practices during preparation, storage or cooking. Good food hygiene practices and procedures should not be underestimated if you operate a food business.
The law holds the business owner responsible
You have a legal obligation to comply with the stringent rules of the Food Safety Act 1990 and the various food hygiene regulations. These systems are fundamental to a “due diligence” defence. Failure to comply with these regulations can carry heavy penalties for companies in way of fines, poor staff morale, loss of business, a bad reputation and possibly even imprisonment.
What this means to you
You must implement and maintain “food safety management procedures” based on Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles. HACCP focuses on identifying the critical points in a process where food safety problems or hazards could arise and puts steps in place to prevent things from going wrong. In addition, you must keep and regularly review the correct documentation and records relating to your procedures.
Most of our food safety training courses are accredited by Highfield Qualifications, one of the UK’s leading Awarding Organisations.
This means that candidates undertake an invigilated examination at the end of a training course, and successful candidates will achieve a recognised qualification. There are lots of benefits of accredited food safety training; these include:
- Accredited training boosts staff retention by satisfying employee ambitions and goals.
- Provides regulatory bodies, such as Environmental Health and the Health and Safety Executive, confidence in your business operation.
- Training your team to set standards helps improve your company’s performance.
- Highly trained, knowledgeable, and skilled staff leads to higher levels of customer satisfaction.
