This online Level 3 Food Safety course is ideal for Supervisors, Line Managers, Potential Managers and owners of small businesses who need an in-depth knowledge of food hygiene and safety.
Food safety describes the practices of managing food so that the food is highly unlikely to cause any harm to the end consumer. Safe food is food which is free from contaminants and will not cause illness or harm.
Food hygiene can be considered as the practical process of ensuring that food is fit to eat.
The public has a great interest in food safety and high expectations of those involved in the food business, but general confidence is sometimes shaken by food scares.
It is therefore important that food businesses have high standards of food hygiene.
The course covers the following topics:
- Introduction to Food Safety
- Food Safety Legislation
- Food Contamination (Food Safety Hazards, their Sources and Causes)
- Controlling Food Safety Hazards
- Food Safety Management
- Supervisory Management in the Food Environment
