Course Description

CPD & RoSPA Approved

Allergies occur when the body’s immune system reacts to a usually harmless substance as though it is harmful. Why this happens, isn’t clear. However, most sufferers come from families that have a history of allergies, or related problems. Every year, the number of people with allergies is increasing, so having an awareness of potential allergens and why they can be harmful is becoming more important, particularly if you work in the service industry.

This online course covers general allergies, food allergies, and food intolerances and explains the differences between them. It covers the 14 allergens controlled by legislation along with food additives and how they can trigger allergic reactions. It takes a detailed look at the symptoms of food allergies and takes in the wider picture discussing the current theories of why rates are increasing. It then finishes off by covering practical steps that can be taken to reduce the risk from allergens and also what steps can be taken both internally and externally to monitor the control measures.

Target Audience

This online course is aimed at anyone working within the food industry and can be sold to individuals or pitched to businesses who might want to put all of their staff through the training.

Advantages

Allergic reactions can have serious consequences, so knowing which substances can cause them and how to avoid cross-contamination is vital to anyone working in the food industry.

CPD approval means that this course can be used by those that need to prove they are continually developing themselves.

Online training is flexible, efficient, and cost-effective, meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their work and personal life

Further Progression

Our Food Safety level 2 courses go hand in hand with Allergen Awareness, as they provide detailed information on food safety and hygiene practices. They are industry specific so more relevant than generic courses and should be completed by anyone who is handling food.

For supervisors and managers in the food industry, our Introduction to HACCP Level 2 course provides an in-depth introduction to Hazard Analysis and managing critical control points so that food remains safe for consumption from farm to fork.

As with many of our Health and Safety courses, if candidates are undertaking this training it is likely that other subjects such as Fire Safety or Slips Trips, and Falls will also be relevant to them.
