Induction Training for Food Handlers

Perfect for new starters with responsibilities around food

This online induction is aimed at new starters in the food and drink industry. Anyone handling food should train in Food Safety Level 2 within 3 months of starting a job, but this induction course is for the first day of work to give a quick overview of safety around food and in the workplace in general.

For food hygiene it covers personal hygiene, food poisoning and cross contamination, then for workplace safety this course looks at fire safety, burns and scalds, manual handling and slips, trips and falls.

Is this course right for you?

Good food hygiene is essential for people handling, serving and selling food which is safe to eat. It is very important that people handling food understand what good food hygiene is.

Our Induction for Food Handlers course has been designed for new starters in roles around Food as "Day One" training. Its aim is to give starters an overview of essential safety topics in Food Safety as well as other important Health & Safety and Fire Safety topics. This gives trainees the ability to get started in their role safely and give employers time to arrange more detailed training when required. For example, a staff member who's primary role is handling food will still require a Food Safety Level 2 certifcate within 3 months of starting.

This Induction training is ideal for:

  • Catering and Kitchen staff
  • Educational staff handling food
  • Support / Care / Charity Worker / Food Handlers
  • Food Retailers

Assessment and Certificate

Once each module of the Induction has been completed and checked off, the online assessment unlocks and becomes available. You will be asked 24 multiple choice questions spanning the topics covered, and be required to achieve a pass mark of 60%.

Pass the assessment, print your certificate

The assessment is marked instantly, and you will find out whether you have passed. If you haven’t, don't worry! You are able to retake the assessment as many times as required with no additional cost.

The assessment sources question from a larger database so each assessment will be different. You are also able to view your previous assessment answers and see which questions you go incorrect.

An Induction training certificate does not have an expiry date, but rather has date of achievement. This enables people to see how recently you have undergone training and are able to demonstate this.
