The Food Safety Standards place obligations on food businesses to produce food that is safe and suitable to eat. Food handlers are also required to have skills and knowledge of food safety and hygiene matters.
With more and more people eating out on a regular basis, food poisoning is on the increase. As people now take legal action when something goes wrong, it makes sense for food businesses to protect themselves by making sure their products are as safe as possible.
FoodSafe has been developed by Environmental Health Australia for individuals and is an ideal first step towards safer food. It is an interactive food handler training program and is available free of charge to all food businesses, community groups and residents within the Shire of Manjimup. The program is fully online with training videos and questions and a certificate is issued upon completion of the course.

Food safety training is not a requirement if;

|(b)||potentially hazardous foods are not involved.|
HOWEVER we encourage you to complete the free online course anyway.
