'In House' Food Safety, HACCP & Food Safety Auditing Training Courses

Do your occupational health, HSE, health advisors, medics or catering managers have sufficient knowledge, auditing experience or training in Haccp or food safety management?

Food safety, hygiene & Haccp training courses are certificated by the Royal Society for Public Health or HABC who are the fasted growing awarding body in the UK.


We specialise in providing 'In House' training on the clients premises or nominated training facility. Training can be completed in most countries around the world and courses and can be adapted for your company.

Food Safety courses are suitable for HSE managers, HSE supervisors, health advisors, food safety advisors, company doctors, clinic medical staff, occupational health, hygiene supervisors, camp bosses or anyone who has responsibility for monitoring or operating food safety systems.

All food safety & haccp training courses are conducted in English - a verbal and written understanding of English is essential but we can also work through a local interpreter. Presentations are very pictorial to assist delegates whose first language may not be English. We recommend an additional day to level 3 & 4 courses for delegates who's first language is not English - this gives a much steadier learning pace.

Haccp & food safety courses incorporate a variety of teaching methods including formal presentations, tutor led discussions, DVD's, individual & group exercises, quizzes and card games. Delegates are provided with handouts and a course-book. To ensure an effective learning environment, recommended course numbers are 12 per course with a maximum of 16.


Relevant examples from the oil and gas industry are used in all courses.
