Our free Food Safety e-learning course has been designed to  provide individuals that handle open food the essential knowledge and understanding of good Food Safety Practice.

This training course will provide candidates with a fundamental knowledge of food hygiene and to enable them to apply this knowledge to essential practical skills in order to prevent food poisoning. This course covers the mandatory requirements for Food Safety.

Safe and effective food safety and hygiene training isn’t just for businesses with a kitchen, it applies equally to businesses selling pre-packaged food and can help protect your business and ensure you avoid unwanted publicity. It also is essential for those working in the Health & Social Care Sector, especially those providing Care at Home.

Our course will help you understand your role in maintaining food safety. Our Free e-learning food safety and hygiene training course are ideal for those who work in low-risk catering environments.

In this course you will cover:

  • Introduction and fundamentals of food safety
  • Common Food Hazards and Risks
  • Responsibilities of food handlers and food safety

The course is completely free and will take you up to around 3 hours to complete. At the end of the course, you will be assessed and providing you achieve a result of 80% will be issued immediately with a free downloadable certificate.

Please note: this course does not provide a qualification itself but does meet mandatory training requirements. If you wish to achieve a recognised level 1 food safety qualification you must sit an exam with a recognised training provider (you can still use the e-learning as the knowledge element of the training). Food handlers must be supervised and instructed and/or trained in food hygiene matters commensurate with their work activity.
