Food Safety Supervisors
Under the Food Act 1984, Class 1 and 2 premises must ensure that there is a Food Safety Supervisor for the premises.
A Food Safety Supervisor is a person who:
- Knows how to recognise, prevent and alleviate the hazards associated with food handling at your premises.
- Has met an appropriate food safety competency standard for your type of food premises through a Registered Training Organisation.
- Has the ability and authority to supervise other people handling food at your premises and ensure that food handling is done safely.
Find out more about the requirements of a Food Safety Supervisor (including the appropriate food safety competency standard) on the Department of Health Food Safety website or contact Council’s Public Health Unit on 9205 5166.
