Level 1 HACCP

Level 1 Food Hygiene & Safety Certificate

As someone who works in an environment that deals with food, it is essential that you understand the basic principles of food hygiene so you can help ensure any food sold by your business is safe for consumers to eat. This Level 1 Food Hygiene and Safety course has been designed to educate those who don’t work directly with preparing or handling food, but work in an environment where food is handled elsewhere or who only work with low-risk foods. The course familiarizes the learner with basic food hygiene practices so they are able to work safely near food.

Who Should Take This Course?

This Level 1 Food Hygiene and Safety course is designed for workers who are not directly involved with the preparation or handling of high-risk foods but work in an environment where food is present or handled elsewhere. This also includes those who work with wrapped or pre-packaged foods. For example:

  • Front of house employees.
  • Checkout staff.
  • Waiters.
  • Bar workers.
  • Food delivery drivers (suppliers, takeaway, etc.).
  • Kitchen porters.
  • Warehouse staff.

If your role involves directly handling or preparing food, then you need to take Level 2 Food Hygiene and Safety (available for retail, catering, and manufacturing) in order to comply with food handlers’ legal obligations. If you are a manager or supervisor in a food business, you will require Level 3 Food Hygiene and Safety.
