About this Course

The Level 3 Food Safety course is designed for business owners, managers, and supervisors working in the food industry. It will help them to raise food safety standards in their business, be able to comply with legislation and reduce business risk.

This course meets a food handler’s legal obligation to undertake appropriate food safety training, as well as building on the safety principles explained in Level 2 Food Safety. It teaches best practice procedures for people in senior-level roles to ensure food is hygienic, control measures are followed and effective food safety management systems are in place.

This course does not provide a qualification itself but you can still use e-learning as the knowledge element of the training. If you wish to achieve a recognised food safety qualification you can opt for our Level 3 Food Hygiene and Safety (RQF) course.

All food outlets should have at least one person trained to Level 3 in Food Safety, especially if they are in a supervisory position and are responsible for training staff.

This course is written by Richard Sprenger, renowned food safety expert and author. It is CPD accredited and meets the UK’s mandatory training requirement for food handlers.
