Level 1 Award in Induction into Safety in Food Premises
CIEH Level 1 Award in Induction into Safety in Food Premises Designed for those entering the workplace for the first time, this qualification provides a basic awareness of key safety issues and the role everyone should play in keeping themselves and others free from harm at work.
Who needs this qualification?
Anyone entering the workplace for the first time – either as part of a work experience programme or at the start of employment – and those who are starting a new job (as part of an induction programme) in food premises.
Why is this training important?
Employers are legally responsible for providing health and safety training to their employees and to supervise, train or instruct employees as appropriately required for their work duties.
