A new qualification has been launched by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) that will benefit anyone working in a logistics business where food is stored, transported or delivered.

The Level 2 Award in Food Safety for Logistics can now be delivered by CIEH registered trainers and training centres. This latest qualification in the market-leading CIEH level 2 food safety portfolio allows trainers to offer a complete package in food safety training, covering the food process from farm to fork.

By law, food handlers must receive adequate supervision, instruction and training in food safety for all the tasks that they are expected to carry out.

Paul Byrne, CIEH Head of Operations, comments: “We developed this new qualification to benefit anyone working in a logistics business where food is stored, transported and delivered. Everyone who works in food logistics has a special responsibility for safe guarding the health of consumers. This qualification underlines the importance of food safety and provides candidates with an understanding of how to identify and control food safety hazards throughout the supply chain activities of storage, transport and distribution. The CIEH is the number one choice for QCF Level 2 Food Safety qualifications.”

The new qualification provides candidates with essential knowledge and understanding of how individuals must take responsibility for food safety, how to keep themselves hygienic and how to understand keeping storage areas and vehicles clean.

The CIEH has developed a training pack that can be used to deliver Level 2 Award in Food Safety for Logistics– containing:
