Food safety training is an essential part of any successful food business.

Every person in your food business has a role in ensuring food is safe to consume.

Well trained staff who are up to date with their food safety training and aware of all of the existing and potential food safety issues in your process are a valuable asset to your business.

The Food Standards Code Standard 3.2.2 Food safety practices and general requirements has specific requirements for food safety training.

Section 3 Food handling – skills and knowledge requires that a food business must ensure that persons undertaking or supervising food handling operations have skills in food safety and food hygiene matters and knowledge of food safety and food hygiene matters commensurate with their work activities.

In addition all good HACCP based food safety programs have a section that describes how your food business trains employees in procedures that ensure food is being produced safely.
