New food safety qualifications.

The Royal Institute of Public Health is launching a new set of food safety qualifications designed to meet the precise needs of employers in the food retail, manufacturing and catering sectors.

These new qualifications have been tailored to meet their particular requirements as set out in the new National Occupational Standards, and the latest European and UK legislation.

With so much media attention on food scares and food poisoning, it is essential that every employee is properly equipped to deliver a safe product to their customers. It is vital that staff are trained at the appropriate level for a qualification specific to their operational environment. Working with the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) and the Sector Skills Councils, the Royal Institute of Public Health offers awards at various levels within the National Qualifications Framework.

These awards cover all the topics relating to hygiene, legal and operational requirements that staff will need in order to operate safely and effectively in their business sector. Employers will then be able to demonstrate to regulators that staff have been properly trained in accordance with national occupational standards for their industry. The courses can be delivered on-site or at one of the many RIPH training centres available nationwide.
