Image of an Inspector with a CatererDo you or your colleagues need to learn more about Food Safety?

If so then this is the course for you! It covers a range of topics to give you a sound, basic knowledge of food safety and leads to a nationally recognised qualification

Why should I attend a Food Hygiene Course?

It is very important that anyone who is working with or around food has a good understanding and knowledge of food safety. If you have an employee working for you who is not trained in this way, it could result in a customer getting food poisoning. This would be very bad for your business and would mean loss of trade. Also the law states that you and your employees must have some form of training in food safety to be able to work with food. This course is a nationally recognised course.

I want to know more about the course !

The course is run by enthusiastic and experienced members of the Tameside Council's Business Compliance Team. It will include a variety of presentations using lots of materials including videos. There will be a short examination at the end of the day which you will be fully prepared for.

What will I learn?

You can expect to learn about topics in these seven main areas:

  • Image of three chefsPersonal Hygiene

  • Prevention of food poisoning and food contamination
  • Cleaning and disinfection

  • Legislation

What qualification will I achieve?

What exactly will the course involve?

Don’t worry! The course only lasts 6 hours, so you can learn everything in one day.
