Food Handlers Training – An update from SA Health

SA Health have strengthened requirements for all food service, catering and retail businesses who handle high risk foods. These businesses are required to appoint at least one Food Safety Supervisor who is able to oversee day to day food handling operations, help food handlers to handle food safely and make sure food safety risks are managed.

What does this mean for your business? More than likely you will need to provide training to key personnel to meet these new standards.

HITsa has created course offerings to meet these standards with:

Food Safety Supervision Skill Set SITSS00069 | combining SITXFSA005 & SITXFSA006

Handle Food Safely in a Retail Environment SIRRFSA001

Both courses are blended delivery including online and face-to-face training. Book online here

Food Safety Supervisor means a person who:

(a)        holds a food safety supervisor certificate that has been issued within the immediately preceding period of 5 years; and

(b)        has the authority and ability to manage and give direction on the safe handling of food.
