Level 1 Food Safety – Retail

CPD, IIRSM, IOSH, Gatehouse Awards & Institute of Hospitality Approved

Food Handlers and their employers have a legal duty to manage Food Safety. These obligations are set out by a number of EU and UK Laws.

Failing to follow food safety standards can cause food to become contaminated with potentially fatal consequences.
