Every year in Australia more than 5 million people fall sick from food-borne illness. Protect your customers by ensuring your staff are well trained and know the importance of food safety.
PEACE OF MIND FOR YOUR BUSINESS
The impact of a serious food-related incident on a business can be devastating. Provide your staff with premium nationally recognised food safety training and protect your business.
Most food businesses in Australia have a legal obligation to employ a qualified Food Safety Supervisor on their team.
In Australia it is a legal requirement that all food handlers are trained in food safety.
In many states and territories (NSW, QLD, VIC, ACT, SA) every food business catering to a vulnerable population (Hospital, Aged care, Child Care) must have a Food Safety Supervisor contactable at all times, and must also have a Food Safety Program in place and operational.
In Australia, it is a legal requirement that all food handlers in such establishments must be trained in food safety.
BENEFITS OF A FOOD SAFETY TRAINING
Food safety employee training benefits both food service employees and business!
Food establishments are responsible for keeping food safe for their customers and for reducing the potential for foodborne health hazards in their establishments
Training employees is an essential activity for all organisations. Training provides employees with the key knowledge and skills that they need to better perform their current job and prepare them for future jobs.
Perhaps the most important benefit of a healthy training culture is that the skills of staff are formally recognised and that employees feel their contribution to the company is valued.
Food safety should be the primary concern when preparing food commercially. Preventing serious food borne illness through training, understanding and using safe food handling procedures is only one of the many benefits associated with effective food safety programs with numerous studies showing that food safety training – both at the employee and manager levels – can substantially reduce the likelihood of food borne illness outbreaks in retail food establishments.
Companies that foster a healthy food safety training culture can enjoy many further benefits, including:
- improved food quality
- increased efficiency and productivity
- greater employee flexibility and responsiveness to change
- reduced insurance premiums
- less food wastage
- reduced maintenance and repair costs
- greater motivation and commitment from staff
- higher staff retention rate
- improved staff morale
- lower absenteeism
- decrease in lost working days
- increased customer satisfaction
- greater safety and efficiency in the kitchen
- safer and healthier guests and employees
Effective training can be very cost effective, as it is considerably cheaper to train existing employees compared to recruiting employees possessing the required skills
Management that understands the benefits of food safety will impart this knowledge to their staff, making the entire operation run effectively, creating a better product with self-monitoring kitchen procedures, allowing management to focus on the business including customer satisfaction and promotion of the facility.
