Level 2 food safety and hygiene for catering

Overview

It’s no secret that we share our world with some really nasty characters, commonly known as germs.

Germs are tiny microorganisms that exist all around us. We can’t see, taste or smell them, but these tiny invaders can make our bodies sick. If you’re someone who handles and prepares food, it’s really easy for you to spread these germs to food without even realising it, and the consequences can be incredibly serious.

We’re going to explore the importance of food hygiene, including food safety hazards, their sources and methods of control. Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll have the knowledge and understanding to handle, process and prepare food safely.

 

Anyone working in a catering setting where food is prepared, cooked and handled should undertake this course.

Food production, preparation, handling, selling and transportation is strictly regulated by legislation.

The rules apply to lots of different professions, and anyone handling food and drink within the catering sector must be trained in Food Safety and Hygiene. E.g. hotels, cafes, restaurants, kitchens, fast-food outlets, hospitals, schools.
