You Ask,
We Answer!

We get that you want to do as much research as possible into the best basic food hygiene training online before purchasing a course.

That’s why we’re ready to answer any questions you may have about learning food safety via our e-learning platform — so you can purchase one of our courses with zero regrets.

Yes. Current legislation requires you have some form of professional training to work in the food industry legally. Getting a certification from Safety Bug is an excellent way to ensure you and your employees are compliant.
A Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate is the minimum requirement for working in the food sector. This is the exact level of certification you can get from Safety Bug.
No! One of the best parts of our e-learning Food Safety courses is that there’s no need to wait for your certificate. It arrives instantly via email as soon as you complete the course and is accessible via your course dashboard at any time.
Yes! While the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) does not accredit Safety Bug courses, Qualifi, a nationally recognised accreditation body, does. A Food Safety course does not have to be CIEH-accredited to meet the government-regulated guidelines all accreditation bodies must comply with.

Face-to-face training for food safety and hygiene is ideal in a perfect world. However, it’s not always practical from a business perspective. In-person food safety training is expensive and subject to time constraints.

Learning food safety online, on the other hand, allows for greater flexibility and saves money. Our online programme has been translated into over 20 language to benefit a greater variety of food industry workers. One or two food safety trainers can’t teach in that many languages. An online course allows the student to learn at their own pace and at a time that’s convenient for them — which helps them to get more out of the course.

The basic Food Hygiene online courses offered by Safety Bug are affordable and practical alternatives to one-on-one training, especially for companies with hundreds of employees.
