Course Description


Food hygiene issues have become so complex that traditional attention to cleanliness and maintenance is not enough. The general principles of food hygiene follow the food chain from primary production through to the consumer, highlighting the key hygiene controls at each stage. The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), is an effective tool to enhance food safety management, thoroughly looks at food preparation to identify the root cause of potential problems and to establish corrective or control measures. HACCP system is a preventative food safety management system, that can be applied throughout the food supply chain from primary production to the consumer. 

Course Objective


HACCP is internationally recognized as the most effective way to manage safe food, providing a structure for objective assessment of what can go wrong and requiring controls to be put in place to prevent problems. In its simplest form, HACCP is an assessment of all the chemical, physical and biological hazards which may contaminate food and cause illness or injury when the food is consumed. When these hazards are identified, appropriate steps must then be taken to eliminate the hazard where possible or reduce the risk (illness or injury) to a safe and acceptable level. The system also requires certain records to be kept as proof that food safety is being managed. 

This course is designed to provide a broad understanding of the principles of food hygiene and HACCP systems and how to make the best use of them in terms of food handling. It will equip participants with the ability to develop, implement, and manage effective food safety management system. The course will teach the participants every aspect of food hygiene, HACCP, and sanitation from purchasing and receiving food to properly washing the dishes.
