Get Food Safety & Hygiene Certified with Minimal Study Time
If you prepare food, serve food, handle raw food, or cook food as part of your job, you need to have appropriate food hygiene training. Though holding a certification in food safety isn’t legally required to prepare or sell food in the UK, you must be able to prove that you know what you’re doing.
From details on how to thoroughly clean your kitchen to food temperature guidelines, if you run a food business you’re legally required to show you’re aware of and able to avoid potential hazards in order to keep your staff and customers safe.
Who is this food safety & hygiene training for?
PD Training provides a high quality programme of training on Food Safety & Hygiene and HACCP. This suite of courses is aimed at anyone working in a business which produces and sells food, whether it’s a restaurant or sandwich business, catering or retail establishment, childcare facility or pub.
Whatever the size of your business and whatever your level, from waiter to supervisor, barista to business owner, there is a course here to meet your needs.
What do the food safety courses deliver?
These courses will guide you through all the important things you need to know about food safety and hygiene, including food hazards and controls, food management, food hygiene, food premises and equipment, pest control, cleaning and disinfection, food preparation and storage as well as regulatory requirements and legal enforcement action.
For those working in the food industry who aren’t directly handling food themselves (e.g. forklift driver in a food warehouse), Level 1 is ideal for getting a good basic awareness. Level 2 caters to those who directly handle and prepare food (such as a kitchen worker) and Level 3 is for managers and supervisors in food businesses (for example a supervisor in a busy catering establishment).
Why does food safety matter?
Food safety and hygiene is important because it protects your customers from potentially fatal foodborne illnesses. In the UK, food businesses have a legal responsibility to ensure their staff are trained on food safety and hygiene. Without appropriate training, food workers pose a risk to consumers, which can result in negative publicity or even legal enforcement action.
The best food businesses care passionately about their customers and ensure their staff are trained to high standards of food safety and hygiene. Register for a Food Safety & Hygiene online course with us now, and you can get started right away.
