All courses are accredited by either the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC), or the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH). All accredited courses are recognized by local authorities, Environmental Health Officers and the Health & Safety Executive.
We also offer non-accredited, in-house CPD courses which have essentially the same content as accredited courses. They can be tailored to meet any specific needs. A CPD certificate will be issued for all in-house courses which can include clients’ logo.

Health & Safety Legislation
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 states it is a legal obligation for employers of five or more staff to have a written health and safety policy in place.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 states it is a legal obligation for employers of five or more staff to have written risk assessments in place.
Food Safety Legislation
Food Safety Management legislation is now based on the traceability of food, and control of any potential hazards, in order to limit the possibility of food poisoning outbreaks. It is based on HACCP principles ie. a system where monitoring checks and controls are put in place with the aim of reducing or eliminating potential food safety risks. It is recommended by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) that those involved in the implementation of a HACCP system have a minimum of Level 2 training in Food Safety and HACCP.
Since 2006 it has been called Level 2 Food Safety, but I still get asked for Basic Food Hygiene. The question is do we go back and call it Basic Food Hygiene or Food Safety
Does level 4 Food Safety need to be more related to different sectors?
Food businesses guilty of sub-standard food safety practices will be named and shamed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) in new reports to be launched next year Is this right? what is your view.
