Food Safety regulations require that if staff or volunteers at your charity or voluntary group handle food (including pre-packaged foods), they must receive appropriate training.
Failing to adequately train your staff or volunteers can lead to enforcement notices from your local environmental health dept, low food hygiene ratings and ultimately fines.
McCrudden Training offers a full range of food hygiene training and food safety courses. We find most charities only need our Basic Food Safety Awareness or the Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering course, we may recommend one member of your team completes our Level 3 Award in Food Safety Supervision in Catering open course. Below are the details of our Level 2 course, please contact us to find our more about our Basic Food Safety workshop.
Our Level 2 Food Safety course covers:
- legal responsibilities of food handlers and food handling organisations
- food safety procedures and behaviours
- food safety risk assessments
- reducing the risk of contamination
- effective cleaning and hygiene
- temperature controls and stock controls
The Level 2 Food Safety in Catering Course (RSPH) is 6 hours long and is usually delivered over one-day, including the examination at the end of the course.
Who is this course for?
The Level 2 Food Safety in Catering is for you if your role brings you into contact with food (including pre-packaged foods). Particularly, if you have never completed food safety training or your training was completed more than 3 years ago.
This food hygiene course is not suitable for kitchen/food supervisors or those in charge of food environments. Supervisors should complete the Level 3 Food Safety Supervision in Catering course.
Benefits of attending
Successfully completing this course will lead to the award of a nationally recognised certificate, and ensure that your staff are aware how to promote food safety in your organisation for the benefit of your staff, volunteers, service users and the wider reputation of your organisation.
