Q: What food safety training is required in school canteens?

Posted on: January 22nd, 2016

Compliance with the Healthy Food and Drink policy, requires paid and volunteer staff to complete FoodSafe Food Handler training (or is equivalent). FoodSafe packages can be purchased from Environmental Health Australia http://www.eh.org.au/resources/foodsafe

Food Safety Australia have a number of courses online that are easily accessed, the equivalent training to FoodSafe is the Food Handlers Certificate Course which is $79 to complete online.

Many local councils have subscribed to training called ‘I’m Alert’. Whilst it is not as comprehensive as FoodSafe, it may be considered a good first step for volunteers.  Anyone can access it for free through local council websites e.g. City of Fremantle http://www.imalert.com.au/foodsafety/training/welcome.php?sub=fremantle
