Food Safety for Maintenance and Contractor Operations Level 2 Training

Course Name: Principles of Food Safety for Maintenance and Contractor Operations Level 2



1 day

Suitable for:

Engineers, plumbers, electricians, gas fitters, construction staff, pest controllers, IT staff, cleaners, food operators, quality control staff, supervisors, managers, and others who may be involved in the safe completion, or monitoring, of maintenance works within a food environment or supervise and sign off such activities.


When it comes to food safety, maintenance staff are often overlooked even though they have a key role to play in protecting the integrity of the product. They are often working alongside food preparation or on equipment that will be used for food preparation so it’s vital they understand the concepts of food safety and the potential for cross-contamination to food products or to the food environment from their work activities. This course will help maintenance staff to focus the necessary knowledge and skills to work within the food safety standards required in a food environment.
