Food safety training at Levels 2, 3 and 4

Part of complying with food safety is managing hygiene. You do this effectively by implementing the following:

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan.

You usually have to write a plan based on the HACCP principles if you run a food business. This keeps your food safe from biological, chemical and physical safety hazards.

Food contact materials

Materials and packaging that can be reasonably expected to come into contact with food are called food contact materials. These can include:

  • packaging
  • food processing equipment
  • cookware
  • work surfaces

To keep food safe for consumption
  • make sure food contact materials don’t transfer anything to food they touch
  • make sure food contact materials don’t change the food they touch
  • when inspected, be able to show where the food contact materials came from

Bacteria and food poisoning

To keep food safe from bacteria, you should follow HAACP. Bacteria that cause serious health problems are:

  • E.coli O157 and campylobacter
  • salmonella, especially with the storage and handling of eggs

The Food safety training we deliver is interactive and interesting as well as informative. We use books, scenarios, information sheets, gap-fill exercises, videos and games to inform build and assess food safety knowledge and legislation. As learners progress from Level 2 to Level 3 the teaching becomes more challenging and analytical progressively becoming more analytical and scenario focused learning and assessment at Level 4.

Can you tell which chicken is considered a high-risk food?


Before we had any food safety training, many of us could confidently answer that it’s the raw chicken. However, during training the direction of our thinking shifts as we discover that it’s the cooked chicken that is a high-risk food. Our learning alters not only our perceptions, but we become acutely aware of any hazards that cooked chicken can be exposed to and how to control these effectively. If you want to learn more about how to keep food safe to eat, join one of our food safety courses.
We are looking forward to training you.
