Food Safety and Hygiene Scotland

Food Safety and Hygiene Scotland

Level 2 accredited course for everyone who works in a food preparation/handling capacity in Scotland

The Food Standards Agency states that:

"Food business operators are required by law, to ensure that food handlers receive appropriate supervision and instruction/training in food hygiene in line with their work activity and should enable them to handle food safely".

So, whether you work in healthcare, social care, home care, a school environment, a nursery, a Café, bar, hotel, restaurant, fast food outlet or kitchen environment, this course provides essential information when seeking to meet your obligations and adhere to UK and EU requirements.

It’s your responsibility to ensure that no-one is put at risk from food that has been prepared and/or handled by you and this course has been written against industry and sector standards/requirements and follows nationally recognised syllabuses that are used by both The Royal Society for Public health (RSPh/RIPh) & the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEh) and in addition, covers specific information associated with food businesses in Scotland who operate under the Food Hygiene (Scotland) Regulations 2006. These regulations are updated on a regular basis and therefore it is important to keep up-to-date with any changes (such as those made in 2010, 2012 and 2014) as these may affect the business you work in.

Completing this course will therefore help to ensure you meet your legal obligations for training and also highlights individual responsibilities and codes of practice relating to Food hygiene. In addition, it illustrates the due diligence measures that should be taken to not only help protect public health but also protect YOU from the risk of prosecution. The topics covered in this comprehensive course include:

  • Food Safety – Exploring why food safety is so important
