Common Questions about Safety Bug's Online Food Hygiene Courses
Do I really need training to work with food?
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.
Which level of certification do I need?
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.
After completing an e-learning Food Safety course with Safety Bug, do I have to wait to get my certificate?
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.
Is Safety Bug Training just as good as a CIEH-accredited course?
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.
How is online training better than face-to-face training?
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.

What Food Industry Experts Are Saying about Safety Bug Training

Trevor’s brainchild Safety Bug Training, with its online access and multilingual options, has made my life so much easier and has ensured we are fully compliant at all times. All my staff are up to date with their certification and new comers are trained easily within the first three months. Thank you Trevor and Safety Bug Training.

I have used SAFETYBUG quite extensively both to update my own qualifications & train staff. The multi language offering is extremely useful within the catering industry as it is unreasonable to expect novice staff to undertake training in their second language. The courses are thorough yet concise and accessible whilst not patronising. I would thoroughly recommend SAFETYBUG to anyone introducing or updating their staff training system.

Safetybug online training courses offered us a very convenient and affordable solution to meet the different needs of our team. The online option is very accessible and this meant we could fit planning the training schedule around less busy production times. We had initially struggled to find a multilingual training programme that would cover the diversity of people working on site, however Safetybug training is translated into many different languages which meant we could up skill everyone. Feedback from the team was very positive and they enjoyed the online learning option. We now plan to purchase further training programmes to continue to up skill the team.
