Highfield Level 3 Food Safety e-learning Course


Food businesses must, by law, ensure that all staff have received the appropriate level of safety and hygiene training commensurate with their role and risk.

Food safety has never been higher on the public’s agenda. UK consumers spend a massive £219 billion a year on food and drink, while the overall sector employs 3.9 million.

Around 95% of inspected businesses score a hygiene rating of three or above. Make sure you’re not one of the 5% who don’t.

This level 3 food safety course meets all legal requirements for supervisors within a food business.

Implementing the knowledge you gain from this food hygiene training programme will improve food safety within your business.

This programme can provide the knowledge required for businesses that aspire to achieve a five-star rating in the national food hygiene rating scheme.

Learners will also be provided with a supporting PDF handbook.
