About our HACCP Course

The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) course is an essential requirement of many roles in the food services sector. In this industry there are a number of risks and as a professional it is your responsibility to understand these risks and how to control or reduce them. This course will teach you everything you need to know about HACCP procedures including developing working practices, reducing risk and handling food safely.

During this course you will learn about each stage of the HACCP food safety system and identify common food safety hazards and the skills that help you prevent food contamination. The material will also cover relevant legislation including requirements relating to workplaces in England, Wales and Scotland.

Do You Comply With the European Food Safety Regulations?

The European Regulation (EC) No 852/2004 on the Hygiene of Foodstuffs requires food businesses in the EU to implement a food safety management system based on the Codex HACCP principles.

By providing effective training, employers can help to ensure that everyone in the workplace is competent to carry out their work safely. Managers, supervisors and other members of staff should be able to recognise the hazards posed by their work, be able to take action to reduce or eliminate the risks and understand how to follow procedures.

Who is this course suited for?

This Level 2 HACCP course is suitable for employees at all levels within a food business. This includes full-time, part-time and temporary workers. The course aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to HACCP and teaches learners about what they can do to help their business implement the system and comply with the law.
