What are my further study opportunities?

After completing the Food Safety (HACCP) Level 1 course, we strongly advise students to complete the Food Safety (HACCP) Level 2 course no later than 12 months after completing the Level 1 course. The Level 2 course, is intended for those who have responsibility for managing food safety or who are involved in food preparation, service, food handling and storage and who have already completed Food Safety (HACCP) Level 1 training. It is ideal also for those working in professional kitchens, hotels, canteens, nursing homes, hospitals, delicatessens, restaurants, childcare, as well as food producers.

In addition, all food handlers could benefit from completing Managing Food Allergens course as this course is designed to help food handlers identify allergens, label foods correctly and ensure they have sufficient knowledge to keep their customers safe from harm.

From 13th December 2014, all food businesses using or handling food allergens are required to declare the use of food allergens in food products (including beverages) whether prepacked or non-prepacked. This is a legal requirement for food businesses including restaurants, pubs, takeaways, contract caterers, food stalls (mobile and stationary) as well as businesses offering delivery services.

Proactive Health and Safety training is critical to Ireland’s regeneration and future success as an effective training program can reduce the number of worker injuries and deaths, property damage, legal liability, illnesses, and missed time from work.

Health and Safety training helps establish a culture in which employees themselves help promote proper safety procedures while on the job. It is important that new employees be properly trained and embrace the importance of workplace safety. The role of training in developing and maintaining effective hazard control activities is a proven and successful method of intervention.

Efficient Health and Safety training demands a new approach, an approach that can innovate and evolve at the same pace as business and technology; a model that espouses the highest quality education and focuses on equipping employees with the knowledge and skills they need to safely perform their daily work-related tasks, and to upskill and retrain where necessary to ensure they can stay ahead in their field.

This is why we have established Fosite Online Training school. We pride ourselves in how we guide, support and mentor our students throughout their learning experience and into their working lives.
