Food Safety and Hygiene Training - Level 1 Course Contents

1. Food Hazards and Food Poisoning

This section is all about food poisoning. It's really important, even if you don't handle food, that you understand how food becomes contaminated, what the main symptoms are and how to avoid the dangers.

2. Personal Hygiene

People are one of the most serious hazards in the food industry because people carry bacteria. This section is all about good personal hygiene, looking at washing hands, what you wear and what you should do if you're ill and your illness could be passed onto others through food. A step-by-step guide shows you exactly how you should wash your hands!

3. Cleanliness and Cross-contamination

Cleanliness in food preparation areas covers things like tidying as you go, keeping work surfaces clean and how to wash-up properly.

Cross-contamination - this is where harmful bacteria are spread from one thing - such as food, surfaces, hands or equipment - onto something else, simply by touching. And cross-contamination can happen at any point during the food process, so here we include correct storage of food and disposal of waste.
