Food Safety Training


Food handlers must be supervised, instructed and/or trained to do their job. Although the law doesn't specify how such training should be provided, it is generally recognised that high risk food handlers should be trained to at least Level 2 in Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering (or equivalent) within three months of starting work. It is good practice that Managers and Supervisors are trained to at least Level 3 in Food Hygiene.

Level 2 training can be obtained as a taught course. Locally Brockenhurst College provide the Food Safety in Catering Level 2 Award , and Hampshire County Council also offer a Food Safety Level 2 course, although other options are available. In addition a number of level 2 course can be completed online, for example High Speed Training and Virtual College. Please note that we cannot endorse any particular course and you should determine whether any course meets your needs.

The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health also provide Food safety training.
