Level 1 Food Safety and Hygiene

Level 1 Food Safety and Hygiene Birmingham

Course Description:

This Food Safety course has been designed to educate those who don’t work directly with preparing or handling food but work in an environment where food is handled elsewhere or who only work with low-risk foods. The course familiarises the learner with basic food hygiene practices, so they are able to work safely near food. This also includes those who work with wrapped or pre-packaged foods. For example:

  • Front of house employees.
  • Checkout staff.
  • Waiters.
  • Bar workers.
  • Food delivery drivers (suppliers, takeaway, etc.).
  • Kitchen porters.
  • Warehouse staff.

For those whose role involves directly handling or preparing food, then you need to take Level 2 Food Hygiene and Safety in order to comply with food handlers’ legal obligations.

For managers or supervisors in a food business, you will require Level 3 Food Hygiene and Safety.
