What is HACCP - Section 1

HACCP is a food safety management system that provides a framework for monitoring food throughout its entire life cycle. From being grown, reared, and harvested to being transported, mixed, cooked, stored, refrigerated, frozen, packaged, and finally sold to and eaten by consumers. In this section, we will cover what HACCP is, the law, and contamination.

The 12 stages of HACCP

Each stage of HACCP is made up of a series of steps – 12 in all - which need to be completed, in order, before moving on to the next. In this section, we’ll journey through HACCP step by step and see what’s involved in implementing a HACCP based system at your workplace.

About this course

HACCP, or the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point System, has been devised to ensure that all businesses involved in the production and sale of food ensure that it is safe for people to consume. 

By following the 12 steps to HACCP employers will work towards compliance with legislation requiring them to manage food safety hazards.

Food can become unsafe for a number of reasons so it's crucial to have an understanding of the many factors that can affect food from production to final consumption.

HACCP is an internationally recognised system and it is vital to have a plan in place for training of all food staff. This HACCP Training course equips learners with the required knowledge to help work towards compliance.
