Allergen Awareness - Off The Shelf Elearning Courses

Food containing allergens needs to be handled with special care, as recent cases have shown that consequences can be devastating on both customers and businesses. Anyone who handles food must know what procedures to follow to keep customers safe.

There are fourteen particular food allergens that are recognised by law and employees handling food must undergo training in food allergy and be aware of the risks of allergic reactions. Food handlers must also be aware of possible food contamination: this happens when allergens unintentionally end up in food.

At Bolt, we have developed Allergen Awareness eLearning Module to provide any employee handling food with all the information on how to read labels, how to avoid contamination and what the symptoms of an allergic reaction are.

Fully online and interactive, available 24/7 on any device, with no time limits, thanks to our state-of-the-art LMS, with an assessment at the end of the module. A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the course.

Regulations: This module covers food safety legislation related to allergens; including the Food Safety Act (1990; as amended)General Food Law Regulation (EC) 178/2002 & 852/2004, and Food Hygiene Regulations (2013).
