The Basic Food Hygiene course introduces participants to food safety and hygiene with a particular emphasis on the responsibilities of food workers to handle food safely. It is a legal requirement that staff involved in a food environment are trained and/or supervised, commensurate with their work activity. The course is delivered with the recommendations and guidance of the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), and the standards are set by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI).
The course, while classroom-based and instructor-led, is interactive with PowerPoint presentations, group work and discussions used to reinforce learning outcomes.
One half-day with a 15-minute refreshment break
No previous qualifications are required for learners to participate in the course.
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a Basic Food Hygiene Certificate from EMS & Associates.
