Course Overview: Understanding HACCP

Our Understanding HACCP course will teach learners about the HACCP guidelines so that food handlers understand how to comply with the HACCP Food Hygiene principles for the implementation of food safety from handling through to distribution. On completion of this course learners will understand why HACCP was developed, the key stages of the process and how to prevent food contamination.

Only by receiving effective HACCP training can you ensure that you are qualified to fulfil duties safely to internationally and industry recognised HACCP standards. Under EU food hygiene legislation (Regulation 852/2004, Article 5), food businesses are required to implement an effective food management system based on the international HACCP system.

What is HACCP?

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a health and safety procedure that enables food handlers and food manufacturers to ensure the food they handle or distribute is safe for consumption. This is addressed through monitoring and analysis and control of biological, chemical and physical hazards from production to consumption.

This course is aimed at anyone working in a food business who may be tasked with activities involving HACCP food safety (such as recording temperatures or data collection) or who may need to put an effective HACCP plan into place. Considered to be the best way of controlling food safety, a HACCP system helps us to safeguard consumers from food bourne illnesses and injury from consumption of unsafe food.
