Course description

Allergen Awareness


Allergen Awareness will focus on allergies and how and why they occur. Allergens are usually harmless substances that appear as harmful in your body. This causes an allergy. If you want to further your understanding of allergens, this course is a great one to get started on. You will learn about the different allergies and intolerances with special focus given to 14 named allergens. You will gain a thorough understanding of food allergen laws and why it is important to follow the proper protocols. There are consequences for not following food laws and businesses should be fully aware of them. There are studies that indicate allergies in people are increasing and thus, it is vital that food establishments have implemented the proper health and safety measures to ensure people who are allergic to certain foods are safe from harm.

There are key modules explored in this course to give you an understanding of how to minimise the risk of allergies. You will learn of the correct protocols to follow in your food business, understand how contamination occurs and learn why personal hygiene is essential in your workers. The food premises and equipment must be kept clean at all times.

Allergen Awareness features practical advice and guidance on reducing cross contamination and the proper methods to report and deal with emergency situations. This is a CPD certified & RoSPA approved course which demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate in the service industry.
