Food Safety Supervisor

Course Information - Food Safety Supervisor

The Food Safety Supervisor course will equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary for handling food safely throughout the food preparation cycle. This includes safe storage of food, along with preparation, display, serving, and food disposal. By the end of the course, you will need to show competence in following defined procedures as set out in a food safety program.

The course and skills are essential for restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, and hotels. But it is also necessary for some tour operators, function, event, exhibition, and conference spaces, educational institutions, correctional centres, hospitals, aged care facilities, military bases, canteens, kiosks, cafeterias, and fast-food outlets, along with in-flight and transport related catering.

Any organisation with permanent or temporary kitchen premises, food preparation areas, or a bar area must have a food safety program in place. This program defines safe food handling practices within the organisation. It is usually based on the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) method. But the knowledge and skills acquired through this course can also be used with other food safety systems.

Safe food handling practices apply to anyone who handles food or food contact surfaces, including crockery and cutlery, during work activities. This would include chefs, cooks, caterers and catering staff, kitchen stewards and hands, along with food and beverage attendants. If you have room attendants and front office staff who also handle food or food contact surfaces, it will also apply to them.

Food handlers must comply with the standards and conditions set out in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.
