Food safety Professional Course In Gujrat

Food-borne diseases (FBDs) are a major cause of illnesses worldwide, caused by ingesting food contaminated with microorganisms or chemicals. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 1.8 million people die due to diarrhoeal illnesses each year, with 70% being food-borne. The hazards that cause FBD may occur in the different stages of the food chain (from primary production to table). If contaminated food reaches the consumer it may have an impact on public health and cause economic damage to the establishments involved in food preparation and sale.

Good manufacturing practices (GMPs) greatly reduce the risk of food becoming contaminated by biological, chemical or physical agents. As public health inspectors are responsible for ensuring that quality is maintained across the food production chain, it is paramount that they are knowledgeable on GMPs. Furthermore, food handlers need to be taught the proper techniques required to reduce the risk of contaminations. Fortunately, the measures for preventing food contamination are very simple and may be applied by anyone who handles food, by following easy rules for hygienic food handling.

The purpose of this training is to provide people who handle food the information needed to facilitate and apply good food handling practices. In addition, it seeks to provide basic information about food safety that countries may adapt to their own needs.

The training is organized into three (3) modules focusing on the following topics: (1) food hazards; (2) Food-borne diseases (FBDs); and (3) hygienic measures to prevent food contamination. The evaluation at the end, is designed to assess the knowledge acquired during the course regarding the importance of hygienic food handling for public health.

The course includes a series of rich-media, interactive modules that incorporate lectures, case studies, short quizzes and a Final Exam. The course also includes explanatory notes, resources and student and instructor manuals to help the audience easily understand the topics. The target audience is food handlers across the world.

Typically candidates might have a City & Guilds 706 plus several years experience in catering, or an Intermediate or Advanced Food Hygiene Certificate from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health. Candidates who are unsure whether their experience will be appropriate should contact the course co-ordinator to discuss the matter.

It is important to know and comply with hygiene rules during the handling of food, because this way we can guarantee food safety and prevent foodborne diseases. Most of the time, the food handler is the one who intervenes as the vehicle of transmission of these diseases, so it is important that we take into account the great role we play in prevention.

The training of food handlers is mandatory and will allow you to obtain a certificate that will accredit you as a food handler, allowing you to work in the food industry. Although it is not mandatory, it is recommended to renew the certificate every 4 years, and to be updated according to the job. Then, the company itself should offer a specific training in its sector.

A food handler is anyone who, through their work activity, has direct contact with food during any of its phases until it reaches the final consumer. This includes: preparation, manufacture, processing, packaging, storage, transport, distribution, sale, supply and service.

This training course will enable you to perform food handling functions, and you should be responsible with this information, as the health of many consumers depends on you.
