Why Do I Need Level 1 Food Hygiene and Safety Training?
If you work in the three main areas (catering, manufacturing, or retail) where food is prepared made or sold then you must have an understanding of food hygiene and safety principles. This course is specifically for those who ONLY handle food and are NOT involved in its preparation or manufacturing. Examples of workers falling into this category are listed below:
- Supermarket Workers
- Waiters and Waitresses
- Kitchen Porters
- Pub & Bar Staff
- Coffee Shop Staff
- Front of House Employees
- Warehouse & Delivery Drivers Who are Handling Food
Please note: If you handle and prepare food this is not the course for you and you should complete the Level 2 food hygiene and safety course
