About Essentials of Food Safety Risk Assessment Training

The course explains how to apply the risk assessment process to each stage of food preparation. Content is based on the Food Standards Agency’s Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) guidance.

Users learn to use HAACP to identify food safety hazards and remove or reduce them to acceptable levels at each production stage. It also examines the principles of successful food safety management so users can be sure systems are effective, productive and compliant.

Why is Food Safety Risk Assessment Training Important?

Professional food production involves multiple steps and staff members, which all pose potential food safety hazards.

Conducting a food safety risk assessment is necessary to identify hazards and determine control measures. Risk assessment findings are also integral to a successful management system that guarantees food products are safe.

Essentials of Food Risk Assessment helps users appreciate the need for food safety management and recognise their role in hazard identification and control.

What are Your Responsibilities for Food Safety Risk Assessment?

Food production is strictly regulated in the UK and enforced by the Food Standards Agency.

Companies involved in food production must:

  • Assess hazards at every stage of food production
  • Implement controls to remove hazards or make them safe
  • Establish an effective food safety management system
  • Keep records and prove actions taken to ensure food safety

Customer health is also a critical concern. Companies linked to outbreaks of foodborne illness face significant reputational harm, as well as potential legal action if non-compliance is found.

Essentials of Food Safety Risk Assessment covers the steps companies must take to ensure food is safe to eat and provides a system to follow for safe food management.
