Level 3 HACCP Training
An important aspect of food safety is a successful food safety system, and anyone working in the food industry needs to be aware of how this system works. Businesses may use a system designed to meet their needs, but EU law requires that all food safety systems are based on the HACCP guidelines and so it is important that food staff understand them.
HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, and is a seven-principle system designed to assess and address potential hazards in food industry workplaces. Employers can only show that they are qualified to fulfil their duties safely if their staff are trained in line with the seven principles of HACCP.
Our Level 3 HACCP Training course guides food safety managers and supervisors through the guidelines to successfully implement and monitor the HACCP (stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) seven principles in their workplace. Only by providing effective HACCP training can you ensure that you and your employees are suitably competent to fulfil their duties safely and to internationally recognised HACCP standards.
As they work through our course, learners will learn about all aspects of HACCP. They will be able to explain the need for a food safety system based on HACCP; how the HACCP principles are used to create a food safety system; how HACCP is applied to the type of food business you work in, and why procedures and documentation are needed to consistently produce safe food.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.
