Who is the Food Safety Essentials course for?

The Food Safety Essentials course is aimed at employees who will come into contact with food during their role.

This is a foundational awareness course that has been designed specifically for employees working within a food business, but not directly handling high-risk foods. It serves as an excellent introductory training module, making it particularly well-suited for the onboarding process of new employees.

Employees also have a legal obligation and moral duty to provide safe food. The law requires employers to ensure that food handlers are trained to a suitable level that is commensurate with their job role. This Food Safety Essentials course ensures that employees can uphold this standard of food hygiene.
