Food safety is about working in a safe and hygienic way to ensure that the food handled, prepared or served is fit to be eaten and will not cause illness. Safe food is food that is not contaminated physically, chemically, microbiologically or with allergens.
This course explores those four types of contamination in detail, exploring the causes and contamination and the measures taken to mitigate the risks. It then explains how food safety is enforced and the food handlers legal responsibilities to comply with the many pieces of legislation and regulation.
The course uses videos, interactive exercises and knowledge checks throughout to bring the topic to life.
