The Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) training program provides participants with the underpinning knowledge and the understanding, on how to recognise, prevent and alleviate the hazards associated with the handling of food.
Legislation in NSW requires certain food businesses in the hospitality and retail food service sector to appoint at least one trained Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) per venue.
These requirements are to help safeguard NSW consumers from foodborne illness.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will receive a Statement of Attainment in SITXFSA001 Use hygienic practices for food safety, SITXFSA002 Participate in safe food handling practices and a NSW Food Safety Supervisor Certificate issued on behalf of the NSW Food Authority.
The Food Safety Supervisor course aims to provide participants with the knowledge and awareness necessary to safely handle foods for sale and particularly focuses on the control of food hazards at critical control points using the systems and principles of HACCP.
