Achieving Food Hygiene Rating Level 5

Achieving Food Hygiene Rating Level 5

Are you looking at how to achieve a food hygiene rating of level 5?

Good food hygiene is essential in order to ensure that food served to customers is safe to eat and to minimise the risk of food poisoning.

As a business owner operating within the food industry, you must adhere to strict procedures when it comes to transporting, storing, prepping and cooking food.

You must also pay attention to cleaning of food prep and storage area, as well as maintaining good personal hygiene.

In December 2008 the Food Standards Agency agreed a National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.

It is now running in all areas of Wales, Northern Ireland and in 99% of England.

In practice, the rating scheme is designed to ensure that businesses that are broadly compliant with food law and are managing food safety risks will receive a rating of three … and those who are managing the risk well will receive a rating of four or five.

However, significant lapses in any of the scoring criteria can also have a significant effect on the rating.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
