Level One – Induction Food Safety Skills
This training programme is based on the Food Safety Authority of Ireland’s (FSAI) Guide to Food Safety Training – Level 1: Induction Skills and has been designed to promote active learning and application of training in the work environment. It is designed to meet the minimum statutory requirements for food safety training for new staff. However it should be followed up with additional specific training for food handlers, supervisory/management staff as well as specific HACCP training for designated personnel with a responsibility in this area.
The target group for this training programme is all employees at induction level in all sectors of the food industry. Typically they will be new to their jobs and will include Irish nationals & non-nationals of all ages from a variety of backgrounds, as is typical of staff in the modern Irish foodservice industry.
The programme is divided into a number of modules and can be provided as a half day (four hour) session.
The programme takes an interactive approach, using group exercises and games, video extracts and trainee workbooks.
FSAI food safety skills competency checklists will be supplied as part of the programme; along with training records & matrices in the FSAI format.
