Food Safety Training

Please note that in the UK, food handlers legally have to have received appropriate training, instruction and supervision but they don’t have to hold a formal food safety certificate to prepare or sell food, although many food businesses will prefer that they do. The level of training received needs to be in line with the food handler’s work activity. The necessary skills may be obtained through on-the-job training, self-study or relevant prior experience. The benefit of holding a certificate and recognised award is that the training received is easily verifiable, supports a positive food safety culture and can form part of a due diligence defence if needed. Some people will choose on line training – please do check with your local EHO as to whether that is going to be acceptable to them before you embark on it as it may not be. I obviously don’t promote online training as there are negative points to it. The benefits of face to face training are numerous.

UK food safety certificates don’t have an expiry date. It is left to the discretion of the food business operator or Environmental Health Officer to decide whether a refresher course is needed. This may be a result of changes to legislation or technological developments in food safety. It is however common practice to refresh training every 3 years and most people do. I would advise to do so. As part of an Environmental Health inspection employees as well as food business operators are frequently asked questions about current good practice and their understanding of food safety management matters so refresher training ensures that they are current and competent. I do deliver/offer refresher options – it’s best to give me a call to discuss how you want to approach it.

The food safety courses I offer are through Highfield accreditation and are listed below with hyperlinks to the accompanying fact sheet from the awarding body. They are available for catering and manufacturing. I am happy to advise on which course may be appropriate but the decision lies ultimately with you.

Aside of the syllabus within all courses I go over what to expect from a visit by the EHO, areas to be aware of and current good practices and recommendations. There are plenty of opportunities to ask questions and I will follow up with you after the course to see if there is anything you need further assistance with.
