Elementary Food Hygiene Level 2

The standard Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS) course for staff and volunteers handling food in the workplace. This course is a requirement for staff and volunteers who handle ‘open food’ in the workplace, i.e. if they are involved in any of the following activities: purchase/ delivery, storage, preparation, cooking and serving of ‘high risk’ food (meat, dairy products, eggs, fish and cooked rice).

This REHIS course is now delivered as an online training session. Our online sessions have been developed to replicate face to face training where possible, and include group work, presentation slides, etc.

Participants will require access to a PC or device which connects to the internet.
