At best, a serious case of food poisoning could damage a business’s reputation. At worst, it could endanger customers’ lives.
Responsible organisations can help to ensure the safety of their business and their customers by gaining a thorough knowledge of basic food hygiene principles and practice.
If you work with food as part of your job, or you’re looking to work in the food industry, then you’ll need training in food safety. This course is endorsed by the Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC) and supports the legal requirement for any staff handling food to be appropriately trained. It provides an overall introduction into food safety, covering topics such as hygiene, bacteria, food poisoning and contamination.

There are no formal entry requirements and you don’t need any previous qualifications in Food Safety to start learning.

On successful completion of the course you will receive a HABC approved certificate (in PDF format) to show employers you have been trained to the right level.
