Level 4 Managing Food Safety and Hygiene (Catering) New

RSPH Level 4 Award in Managing Food Safety and Hygiene (catering) Course

Who needs this qualification? 

This level 4 food safety qualification is principally designed for senior staff and those who are managers of food handlers in a food business within the catering and hospitality industry. It covers all of the necessary aspects of food hygiene and safety in depth, providing candidates with thorough knowledge. It concentrates on the need for programmes and procedures to be properly drawn up, introduced and monitored to ensure full compliance with the legislation.

Why is Level 4 training important? 

With so much media attention on food scares and food poisoning it is essential that anyone who works in a catering environment is properly equipped to deliver a safe product to their customers. It is vital that staff are trained at the relevant level and that you support them in this task.
