Understanding HACCP

Our Understanding HACCP online training course is for those individuals who need to put in a system and that they contribute to the company HACCP System

Contaminated food that potentially could make us ill is a major hazard in the food industry. HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is a food safety management system which aims to identify hazards, be they physical, chemical, biological or allergic before they have chance to harm the food we are producing or selling.

Although a management strategic tool, the HACCP system can only operate successfully if all HACCP team members, and every person in the organisation who is asked to play a part in HACCP food safety, knows what they are doing and why. This course is intended to enable everyone who has a role to play that concerns HACCP, such as; taking a measurement, observing a system, storing foods or making a recording of temperature, to then carry out their role conscientiously and correctly because they will understand its importance. This is a key course for all food workers.
