About the course

S.L. 449.31 requires caterers to ‘ . . . ensure that any stage in the activities of a food business which is critical to ensuring food safety is identified and adequate procedures are identified, implemented, maintained and reviewed on the basis of a system of HACCP . . .’

HACCP – Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points – is an internationally recognized system of food safety management. It focuses on process control and the prevention of identified hazards in a particular establishment. It is required in all kinds of food businesses, as a means of ensuring food safety.

Food handlers responsible for developing and maintaining a business’s food safety procedures, based on HACCP principles, should receive adequate training, to a level commensurate to their responsibilities. It is the responsibility of the operator of the food business to ensure that this happens. The requirements for training should be seen in the context of the nature and size of the business.

Entry Requirements & Learning Assistance

Whilst not essential, it will be much easier for delegates if they have previously attended a Food Handling Course – Category B, implementing the requirements of S.L.449.24, and are able to read and write fluently. Should any delegate have any learning difficulties, please advise the trainer(s) in order to allow them to discuss how they may help you reach the course objectives.

This aim of this three-day course is to give delegates a good knowledge of HACCP principles, their application, management and control. By the end of the course delegates should be able to construct process flow diagrams, conduct a hazard analysis, establish critical control points using the decision tree, and manage a food-related complaint.
