Overall Aim: 


This foundation level course is recommended for any staff that work directly with food, work in a food environment or are in a position to influence others in the importance of food safety.




Some of the main reasons for food poisoning occurring are negligence, ignorance, a poor food safety culture and a failure to implement good practices. Effective training and instruction will prevent food poisoning if food handlers are taught the potential hazards related to their workplace which could jeopardise food safety and how they need to work to ensure they control the risk they pose. A food handler is anyone who works directly with food or in areas where food is prepared or served.
