Course description

Food Safety - Level 1


If you work in a food establishment but don’t directly handle or prepare food, the Food Safety – Level 1 course is ideal for you. The course is designed for individuals to gain an understanding of the basic principles of food and safety. Many people work in establishments that serve customers and need to apply food and safety practices when near food. The course focuses on these elements and enables individuals to familiarise themselves with best practices in order to be near food in a healthy manner.

The Food Safety – Level 1 course covers key topics which includes food hygiene, the importance of food safety, food safety practices, food contamination and how to prevent it.
