Food Handlers and their employers have a legal duty to manage food safety. These obligations are set out in a number of EU and UK regulations. This legislation states that food handlers must make sure that food which is prepared, cooked, served or sold, is safe for human consumption. Failing to follow food safety standards can cause food to become contaminated with potentially fatal consequences. Training employees with our online system provides what they need to gain greater awareness of the dangers that poor food safety standards pose, as well as covering how food safety hazards actually arise and how to control and prevent them.

Food Hygiene Training FAQ
1. How do get a food hygiene certificate?
Food safety training online is a good way to obtain a certificate. By purchasing and completing the food hygiene online training course relevant to your occupation, and passing the test questions it you will be able to download your certificate. Our tutor-led food safety training online courses are very engaging, informative and achieve a high standard of presentation – you’ll love the experience, but be prepared to take this seriously – the instruction is excellent but don’t expect a walkover!
2. How long will my food hygiene certificate be valid for?
As with many kinds of training in industry there is no set-in-stone period after which food safety training should be taken again. The employer is responsible to carry out a risk assessment for the safety of his enterprise and should determine the organisation’s policy on training requirements in line with the level of risk at the premises. However, the Food Standards Agency advises that people involved in food handling should refresh their knowledge every 3 years so that they keep up to date with new developments in the industry. Refreshing your food safety training online with Safe-Assure is the ideal way to do this.
3. Do I need to take Training Level 1 before taking the other courses?
Our food safety training online courses don’t have to be taken in any particular order but the level of each course correlates with the depth of knowledge provided, which should be at least sufficient for the type of work the candidate is involved with. Those involved with food preparation, raw meats and date-limited ingredients for example, need a higher level of training than those who may only have to serve pre-cooked and prepacked food at a counter.
4. Are your courses accredited?
Our courses carry approvals from CPD and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents – check the course details.
5. Do I need certification in order to sell food from home?
When you start a new food business, or take over an existing food business, you will need to register with your local authority. You should do this at least 28 days before opening. Registration of your food business is free and can’t be refused. Registration is simple and will take a matter of minutes. If you are already trading and have not registered, you need to do so as soon as possible.
Food safety legislation requires the registration of activities where food is supplied on a regular and organised basis. This is required whether food is given away free or sold. While you may not define yourself as a business, if you are providing food on a regular and organised basis, you are a food business under food law. The Food Standards Authority exists to regulate these matters.
