This course will aid in understanding and maintaining good practise in the handling, processing and preparation of safe food. It is appropriate for anybody wishing to have an awareness of food hygiene. It has also been designed to help the food and catering industries to provide training to a safe level for those who perform ‘low risk’ tasks such as clearing tables, maintaining stores, ‘meals on wheels' and other similar duties.

It is also relevant to employees working in food factories but not in ‘high risk’ sections of the plant and people whose work requires them to enter food premises e.g. equipment maintenance engineers, off-site business owners or managers and delivery personnel.
