Food hygiene, Level 2 food safety qualification is a must-have for all food retailers! Enabling valuable knowledge about relevant legislation and how to maintain high standards of hygiene, along with the responsibilities towards keeping work areas clean and safe for handling food.

Health and safety is a valuable asset to employers and employees regardless of their level within a business, it ensures that workers can sensibly manage risks to protect colleagues and the business. Good health and safety management is characterised by strong leadership involving your managers, workers, suppliers, contractors and customers helping to create an environment where risks can be sensibly managed to protect everyone involved with the company.
