Level 2 Food Safety- Who should attend?

There are more than 500,000 cases of food poisoning in the UK each year, our Level 2 Food Safety course will help your business as EU and UK regulations state that all food handlers must receive appropriate training in food safety practices relevant to their duties.

Additionally, having a good understanding of food safety practices is not only a legal requirement, it is also essential in protecting the health of both consumers and food handlers.

The QA Level 2 Food Safety is a regulated and nationally recognised qualification for people working, or planning to work, in the food catering industry. The qualification is also ideal for those who come into contact with food handling due to their work.

The candidates who would need to undertake Food Safety training are: Restaurant chefs, takeaway workers, café staff, waiters, hospital workers, childcare workers, anyone who will be handling food in the work place. Successful candidates will gain a strong understanding of the importance of food safety, including correct food handling practices and measures to reduce the risk of contamination.
