An Introduction to Level 1 HACCP in Awareness

This module introduces the learner to the course and explains how the food that is contaminated can result in illness. It specifically looks at the ‘high risk’ categories of people, such as pregnant women and the chronically ill. It is important to be aware that if anyone within the ‘high risk’ category becomes ill from food contamination, the consequences could be dangerous.

Module 1 – HACCP and Food Safety Hazards
This module explores what HACCP is, it’s origins and how was developed. It looks at the different food safety hazards and how they can be prevented. It also looks at employee’s responsibilities and the ‘HACCP team’.

Module 2 – HACCP Prerequisites and Personal Hygiene
This module looks at what HACCP prerequisites are and their importance in implementing successful HACCP systems. It also looks at why personal hygiene is important to prevent the contamination and cross-contamination of hazards.


On completion of the course lessons and training material, an online assessment will automatically unlock. The assessment will contain 15 multiple-choice questions and a mark of 75% or above will be required to pass.

The assessment will be marked instantly and so you will know straight away if you have passed or not. If you don’t pass first time there’s no need to worry. Unlimited resits at absolutely no additional charge are available so you can retake the assessment again as many times as you need to.
