Food safety course
Food hygiene training
Everyone handling food in a business must be supervised and have had food hygiene training. This is a legal requirement and is an essential part of good hygiene practice.
Those responsible for the Food Safety Management System of the business must have had training in the application of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) principles.
The Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS) provide approved elementary and intermediate level food hygiene courses. The elementary course is a basic course aimed at all food handlers, with the intermediate one being aimed at supervisor/manager level. A list of approved training centres can be found on their website. To find a training centre in your local area, please visit the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS) site.
