Level 3 Supervising Food Safety
Our Level 3 Supervising Food Safety course has been designed to give supervisors & managers the knowledge to instruct their staff are shown the correct procedures and that these are maintained going forward.
The results of poor food safety in commercial businesses can be devastating. Apart from the suffering caused by illness, loss of reputation will lead to loss of orders and financial loss, and possibly fines or closure. It is a legal obligation that all food handlers undertake food safety training, which will of course help to ensure food is wholesome, but this training must be backed up on a daily basis by good systems on the job instructions and supervision.
To do this, supervisors and managers must themselves be well trained and able to guide staff in safe methods. This responsibility will only be possible if those involved are themselves well trained, and are able to identify food hazards. This course is not separated into the occupational categories of manufacture, catering and retail, as these skills of supervisory good practice are common to all food production.
