Food Safety Manufacturing



Food Safety Manufacturing

This 1 day Food Safety Manufacturing course is essential for all food handlers. The course makes delegates aware of the hazards and controls associated with the types of food they produce. The regulated qualification is designed for people who work, or intend to work in food or drink production. In addition to the fundamentals of food safety, candidates will gain an appreciation of the specific types of hazards, controls and monitoring associated with food manufacture.

This qualification has been designed to address the differences between catering and manufacturing environments, and will ensure staff are compliant with the requirement for businesses to train food handlers to levels commensurate with their work activities.

Every year, many people are made ill and some even die as a result of eating contaminated food. Food businesses have a legal and moral obligation to ensure they are not contributing to these statistics. Whatever the type of food being produced, controls must be put in place to ensure all types of contamination and temperature abuse are either eliminated completely or controlled to ensure safety.

The food business operator in any type of food business has a legal obligation to ensure that staff are supervised and instructed and/or trained in food hygiene matters to a level necessary for the type of activity they are carrying out. The most effective way of complying with this legal requirement is to obtain an appropriate, regulated qualification in food safety and ensure the knowledge gained is implemented in the workplace. HABC’s Level 2 qualifications in food safety help organisations to comply with this requirement.

Achievement of this qualification will enable learners to identify how to make changes to catering practices in order to improve the safety of catering services.

This qualification is available in English, Hindi, Polish, Arabic, Malayalam and Thai.
