Blended Level 2 Outdoor Food Safety 
 
Topics covered 
The course meets all requirements of the standard L2 award with the additional content and certification in order to comply with the outdoors environment. 
 
The syllabus satisfies the requirements of many outdoor organisations including Forest Schools, Duke of Edinburghs’ Scheme, Scouts, Guides and other youth groups as well as any food handler. 
 
The course includes the following topic areas: 
How individuals can take personal responsibility for food safety in the outdoors, including safe procedures, handling and reporting of incidents and your legal responsibilities. 
The importance of food handlers keeping themselves clean and hygienic, including personal and general hygiene, reducing the risk of contamination and appropriate food handling practices.

Identifying the importance of keeping food products safe, including identifying and analysing threats from all types of hazards found outdoors including microbiological and physical, temperature control, storage and preparation. 
The course involves the preparation, cooking and hopefully consumption of a simple campfire meal. 
 
We will also discuss any specific individual organisational requirements around bespoke outdoor cooking policy and Risk Assessments.
