HABC Level 3 Award in Principles of Developing a Positive Food Safety Culture

Duration: 1 day course

Course introduction

Food safety culture is fast becoming a topic of importance in the food industry as businesses recognise the requirement for all members of staff, from food handlers up to management, to show a commitment to the safety of the food produced.

The Level 3 Award in Developing a Positive Food Safety Culture is designed for delivery to supervisors of food handlers or managers of food businesses. It has been devised to improve the awareness of the importance of developing and maintaining a positive food safety culture and how every staff member is important in achieving this.

This qualification is usually obtained by taking a one-day classroom-based course.
However, it can also be achieved through a variety of other methods including blended
and distance learning as long as the recommended learning hours are completed.

This qualification is assessed by a learner workbook set by HABC
and marked by the centre.

Its topics include the importance of leadership and communication at all levels and how to promote a positive food safety culture in a business by motivating and training staff and regularly performing reviews of working practices.

Individuals achieving this qualification can progress onto:
• HABC Level 4 Award in Managing Food Safety in Catering (QCF); and
• HABC Level 4 Award in Food Safety Management for Manufacturing (QCF).
