Level 1 Food Safety – Retail

Started on February 23, 2020

This entry level certification, Food Safety Level 1 – Retail provides an ideal introduction to food standards and food safety. Food Business owners and their employers have a legal duty to manage Food Safety under Food Hygiene (England) Regulations, 2005 and the provisions of regulations 852/2004 of the European Parliament on the Hygiene of Foodstuffs, Food Safety Act 1990.  These laws state that food handlers must ensure that food which is prepared, cooked, served or sold, is safe for human consumption and undergo the necessary training and supervision. Failing to follow food safety standards can cause food to become contaminated with potentially fatal consequences. Training your employees with our online system will go a long way to give them greater awareness of the dangers that poor food safety standards pose, as well as covering how food safety risks actually arise and how to control and prevent them. The entry level is this introductory course, Food Safety Level 1 award.

The Level 1 Food Safety – Retail award provides an ideal solution to staff induction training including:
• New employees with minimal or no prior food safety knowledge;
• Employees handling low-risk or wrapped foods (category A);
• Front of house employees, such as waiting or check out staff;
