Food businesses are placed under a legal obligation to provide food hygiene training for their staff to a level ‘commensurate to their work activities’.
In practice, this means that food handlers working in a variety of catering or retail outlets must be trained to level 2 in food safety/hygiene. Level 2 food safety training is the equivalent of the old basic food hygiene certificate.
The Food Safety Level 2 training course is ideal for food handlers who work in a catering environment, including restaurants, cafes, hotels, bars, fast-food outlets, takeaways, mobile food trucks, kitchens, hospitals, schools and colleges.
Public confidence in terms of food safety is a major concern for any business in the food sector.
Increasing public, media and legislative scrutiny means food businesses must get it right first time, every time.
This online food safety training course helps ensure your staff understand their role in maintaining food safety.
