Food Safety for Warehousing and Distribution Training​ Course Overview

Food Safety refers to handling, storing, and preparing food to avoid infection and ensure that the food contains enough nutrients for us to eat a healthy diet. Safe food handling practices and procedures are implemented at every stage of the food production life cycle to reduce these risks and protect consumers. A food-grade warehouse is a specialised facility that offers various types of food storage, such as ambient, refrigerated, and frozen space. Holding lucrative skills in implementing food safety standards during warehousing and distribution will allow individuals to work on high posts and help organisations build a brand reputation in the market.

In this 1-day Food Safety for Warehousing and Distribution Training course, delegates will learn to keep high-risk food out of dangerous temperature zones to prevent bacterial growth that causes food poisoning. They'll learn how to demonstrate good food safety and hygiene practices, including storing and preserving food. Furthermore, they will learn how to prevent any bacteria present in food products from multiplying to the point where it causes illness in consumers or premature spoilage of the food. Our highly skilled and professional trainer will conduct this training who has years of experience in teaching Health and Safety courses.

Course Objectives:

  • To analyse all potential food hazards or anything that might hurt the consumer
  • To identify and implement effective control and monitoring procedures at critical points
  • To keep appropriate records to show your procedures are working
  • To learn and comply with the international food safety standards and regulations

After attending this training course, delegates will be able to take corrective action if their Food Hygiene and Safety procedures aren't working as expected. They will also be able to implement cleaning procedures for food-contact equipment and other items and maintain and install equipment to allow for adequate cleaning of the surrounding area.
