Allergen Awareness Online Training Introduction

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

This allergen awareness course will go through general allergies, food allergies and food intolerances and it will explain the differences between them. The course covers the 14 allergens controlled by legislation along with food additives and how they can trigger allergic reactions. We will also take a detailed look at the symptoms of food allergies and discuss the current theories of why rates are increasing. You will then finish the course 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.

Who needs Allergen Awareness Training?

This course is aimed at anyone working within the food industry including businesses owners who may wish to put all their staff through the training.

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.
