Food Hygiene Level 5 Online Course Introduction

Food Hygiene ratings started as local schemes with a system called Scores on the Doors. This became the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in 2008 and is governed by the Food Standards Agency. This scheme is running in Northern Ireland, Wales and most of England.

The rating scheme is designed to ensure that businesses that are broadly compliant with food law, and are managing food safety risks, will receive a score of 3. Those who are managing the risks well will receive a score of 4 or 5. The rating will be given within 14 days of an inspection and can be influenced by historic data. A certificate, sticker and leaflet will be given to you to display in your window. You can dispute your rating if you’re not happy and can appeal it.

Using a good food safety rating can also help you to advertise your premises, especially on external food delivery apps. In Wales, you must display your Food Safety Rating in your store window.

Who needs a Food Hygiene Level 5 Course?

Any premises that supply food directly to the public will need a food hygiene rating unless they’re domestic premises such as child minders, and low risk outlets such as off-licenses and chemists. This also doesn’t apply to manufacturers who do not supply the public directly.

You should have already completed the Food Safety Level 2 course before continuing with this one.
