Level 1 Food Safety Course Overview 

The half-day Level 1 Food Safety course is ideal for employees who are in a low risk food handling role, e.g. those handling packaged food, bar staff, care workers, waiting staff and kitchen porters.

Attendees will gain an understanding of the importance of food hygiene and the risks, processes and techniques they need to demonstrate in their role to help in the provision of safe food to customers.

The course can be applied across multiple sectors including catering, retail and manufacturing and marine (this course is MCA approved). With in-house training, the delivery of the course is adapted to your exact business type to enhance the relevancy and impact of knowledge gained.

To ensure that all staff are working to the same agreed standards, it is ideal to include the half-day Food Safety Level 1 Course as part of a new staff induction process.

FB-AVAK have used GH Training Solutions several times in the past year, and have always found the courses to be interesting and informative. Ghislaine has a way of making courses fun, even when the subject matter (Health & Safety) can occasionally be a bit dry.

I would highly recommend GH Training Solutions for any business looking for staff training.
