Hi, I am David Newsum, and welcome to my training and blogging site – I am a freelance training consultant, 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, and I have held a training account and registered centre with the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) continuously since 1992. 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 recently been honoured to be elected as a Trustee of the CIEH to take up office in January 2019, 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.
