Food Safety Courses in Birmingham

A team of Birmingham Environmental officers can inspect any food business in Birmingham at any time and they don’t need any appointment to do that. The inspectors can rate the business from 0 to 5, with 0 meaning “urgent improvement necessary” and 5 meaning “very good”. Such rating can severely affect the way the consumers might feel about a particular food store/brand/business. This is the reason, employers today, significantly emphasize on the employees food safety knowledge while recruiting. Most employers actually ask for a food hygiene certificate before selecting employees for their organization. Such certificates can be availed on completion of most of the food safety courses in Birmingham.

Food Safety Course Overview

A food safety course is generally a set of guidelines that aim to educate individuals on how to prevent potential dangers when working with food. It also includes systems that keep food safe across all aspects of food handling, such as pest control, staff health & hygiene, cleaning, waste management, recall procedures or staff training.

On completion of such courses learners should understand:

  • Why food hygiene and safety is important?
  • Their personal and legal responsibilities.
  • The impact of foodborne illness.
  • How food becomes contaminated?
  • How to prevent contamination through good hygiene practices?
  • How to control contamination through safe temperatures and storage?
  • How to control food safety hazards at critical control points?

Training Format of food safety courses

The most popular food safety courses are usually offered online. These courses offer a self-study format and allow individuals to participate in these programmes from their homes. These courses generally take a few hours depending on the materials and the topics covered. After going through the course materials, they would have to sit for an online test and a certain pass mark (usually 70%-80%) will result in a certificate from these online courses.

Career Prospects for professionals

Professionals with a degree/certificate from food safety courses can get jobs in the Hospitality, Leisure, Travel and Tourism industries including hotels, fast food outlets, takeaways, cafes, bars, kitchens, catering in hospitals, schools and colleges.
