Level 1 Food Hygiene and Safety
Anyone who works in an establishment that deals with food should have a basic understanding of the principles of food hygiene and safety. In industries such as catering and food delivery, it is essential that any food safety hazards can be identified and that waste is managed efficiently.
This Level 1 Food Hygiene and Safety Course is for employees who don’t handle food directly, but work in an environment where food is handled. Each training module is designed to address the introductory key elements of food hygiene and safety; from food hygiene and safety laws, to safety control measures, personal hygiene and food safety hazards.
By the end of the course you’ll have an excellent understanding of how to ensure food safety in the workplace and how to comply with food health and safety legislation. Please note that if your job requires you to handle food, then you will need to take a Level 2 Food and Hygiene Safety Course in addition to this one.
