Dig a little deeper
Many online courses offered don't have the backbone the nice looking website try make them look like they have. We have added this section to allow you to see what we have behind our awards and how hard we work to give you the highest standard we can possibly achieve.
Do I need health & safety training?
Yes you do so that you comply with current legislation.
The law states that you must undertake training that is relevant to your role:
- Food handlers must receive appropriate supervision, and be instructed and/or trained in food hygiene, to enable them to handle food safely.
- There is no legal requirement to attend a formal training course or get a qualification, although many businesses may want their staff to do so.
- The necessary skills may also be obtained in other ways, such as through on-the-job training, self-study or relevant prior experience.
The operator of the food business is responsible for ensuring this happens.
Does the training have to be an accredited Level 2 course?
Your training does not have to be accredited. We think it's important to give you honest answers.
An Environmental Health Officer (EHO) is more interested in the following:
- you have received relevant training
- the training complies with current laws
- you understand the reasons behind food safety
- you apply food safety practices and methods in your workplace.
An EHO’s role is primarily to ensure that you are preparing, cooking or serving food to the general public in a safe manner and it will not harm anyone. Your training may be in-house, a CPD (Continuing Professional Development) course or fully Accredited. The important point is that you receive training, understand it and put it into practice.
Will an EHO accept my Level 2 health & safety certificate?
Our training course meets the required standards recognised by an EHO, but you will have to demonstrate proof of learning and that you are implementing this knowledge into your everyday role.
Environmental Health Officers MUST remain impartial. They cannot favour one training company or product over another. This is worth knowing if an EHO queries your choice of provider.
Our course meets nationally recognised standards that an EHO must recognise because of the steps we have taken to satisfy Qualifi, our accrediting body.
The role of an EHO is to ensure that you are preparing, cooking or serving food to the general public in a safe manner and it will not cause injury to a person.
Do the courses have ‘use-by’ dates?
If you register and pay for a course yourself you will have 30 days access to complete the course training material and the test. It may be useful to know that most applicants complete the course within 1-2 days.
If you buy multiple courses, or a bundle for you and your staff, the 30 days starts when each member of staff registers a course code. This means that you can buy as many course codes as you like and use them as and when needed. When you have gained a pass in the exam, the course access ends, leaving you to download your pass certificate at anytime; just log back in. When it comes to your training requirements we want you to have as much flexibility as possible.
Is the Level 2 health & safety certificate instant?
We want you to get your pass certificate straight away and we also want to give you a great price on all our courses. For the Level 2 food hygiene course we do not print and post certificates as this would significantly increase the cost of the course to you which is not good news for anyone.

Our Customers Said
“I completed on-line the Level 2 Award in Health & Safety in the workplace . It was fast, easy to understand and I managed to complete it in no time! Really recommend this course and will happily do more training on this web site.“
“Very easy to use with lots of practice and information pages. Really felt I'd learnt more - even some surprises. Will definitely recommend to others. Must be done by anyone handling food. The first time I did this it was a one day course, but this covered everything and you can choose your own pace.“
“I really enjoyed doing the course I found it very easy to follow and I was pleased when passing the exam at the end. I would certainly recommend this course to others. I particularly liked the section on bacteria I found it very interesting.“
