This Listeria Awareness Training course highlights how dangerous a Listeriosis infection can be, especially to people who are classed as vulnerable. Listeriosis, caused by the Listeria bacteria, can cause people to become ill and in some severe cases, can develop sepsis, meningitis, or encephalitis. Due to this, it can have life-threatening consequences, but this could be easily avoided through the safe handling and preparation of food

People who work with food, especially those who handle or produce food for vulnerable people, should have the knowledge on how to practice this safely to ensure avoidance of a listeria outbreak. This online Listeria Awareness Training course offers knowledge on what Listeria is, how to handle food safely to avoid causing illness, and how to look out for the signs and symptoms of Listeria.

It is imperative that food-workers are aware of how Listeriosis is caught and what they can do themselves to ensure that they are taking all the precautionary measures to protect the health of others, especially those who are classed as vulnerable, such as pregnant women, babies, etc. as Listeriosis can sadly cause miscarriage, early labour, stillbirths amongst other debilitating and life-threatening outcomes. .
