Level 2 Award for Food Safety

Duration: 1 day including exam

Course Introduction

This qualification is designed principally for all those who are, or intend to be, food handlers within the catering, retail, manufacturing and hospitality industries. A food handler is any person who handles food, whether open or packaged.

Holders of this qualification will have a knowledge and understanding of the importance of food hygiene; associated food hazards, good hygiene practice and controls based upon an awareness of food safety management systems.

These topics are regarded by the Food Standards Agency as being important to understanding and maintaining good practice in the handling, processing and preparation of safe food. This qualification may also be appropriate for people whose work requires them to enter food premises e.g. maintenance engineers.

Suggested further development would be to Level 3 Award in Food Safety
