Course Overview of Allergen Awareness Training
CPD, IIRSM, Gatehouse Awards & Institute of Hospitality Approved
Allergen Awareness Training discusses common allergens, food allergies, and food intolerances while delineating their distinctions. It discusses food additives and how they can cause allergic reactions, as well as the 14 allergens regulated by law. It examines the signs and symptoms of food allergies in great depth and discusses the broader context of current hypotheses for why rates are rising. The final section discusses strategies that can be performed in practice to lessen the danger from allergies as well as how to monitor the control measures both internally and outside.
When the body’s immune system responds to a typically benign substance in a damaging way, allergies can result. Why this occurs is unclear. The majority of sufferers, however, come from families with a history of allergies or similar issues. Being aware of potential allergens and why they could be hazardous is more crucial, especially if you work in the service sector, since the number of people with allergies rises every year.
Anyone working in the food industry is targeted by this course, which can be offered to individuals or pushed to companies that might wish to put all of their workers through the training.
Anyone working in the food sector has to be aware of the compounds that can cause allergic responses and how to prevent cross contamination because these reactions can have catastrophic repercussions.
Because this course has CPD accreditation, anyone who need to demonstrate that they are growing personally and professionally can use it.
Since online training is convenient, effective, and affordable, candidates may complete the courses at their own pace and on their own schedule, allowing them to fit the training around their other obligations.
Both of our level 2 courses in food safety and allergen awareness cover in-depth information on good hygiene and food safety practises. They are more applicable than general courses because they are industry-specific, and anyone handling food should finish them.
Our Introduction to HACCP Level 2 training gives supervisors and managers in the food sector an in-depth introduction to Hazard Analysis and managing important control points so that food remains safe for consumption from farm to fork.
Candidates who enrol in this training can expect that other topics like fire safety or slips, trips, and falls will also be pertinent to them, as is the case with many of our health and safety courses.
