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
Class 1 and 2 food premises must ensure there is a food safety supervisor for the premises.
Class 3 and 4 food premises do not need to have a food safety supervisor. However, they must ensure that all staff working at the premises have skills and knowledge to safely handle food in their premises.
