Hi, I am David Newsum, and welcome to my training and blogging site – I am a freelance training consultant and Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner, specialising in environmental health training and support services. Before that I spent many years as an EHO in Manchester before moving on to set up my own business.
I have now been delivering food safety and health and safety courses to a wide variety of small, medium, national and corporate organisations for over 25 years, as well as training enforcement officers for the Food Standards Agency on many occasions. My current main food safety activity is in food allergens, food safety management systems, and supervision of food premises.
Every training course that I design is bespoke to the business and participants, whether accredited or non-accredited. I deliver Introductory, Foundation and Intermediate Food Safety Certificate courses regularly, as well providing coaching, policy, auditing and support services across the UK. I also support businesses who wish to achieve 3rd party standards such as BRC, NSF, and SALSA, or who simply want to obtain and keep the highest Food Hygiene Rating (5).
I have been a trustee of the CIEH, and I am also a Fellow of the CIEH.
For over 30 years, in addition to my main training and consultancy work, I have been developing and using creative training techniques, and I am now coaching and mentoring trainers in their quest to deliver great training which will generate repeat business.

Hi David, attended the North West Trainer forum last Thursday. Great afternoon, apart from meeting other trainers, I was inspired to re-think my training techniques. I use the flip chart off the stand but only for HACCP and to get candidates to realise connections in Food Safety, so now I have more ways to utilise it, thank you. Having a good look at power point as well, as you said time consuming but worth it.
Kind Regards John Joseph. Maryport, Cumbria
Hi John thanks for feedback – do keep in touch about your rethink, as I am sure others including myself would like to be inspired by you in return!
