This course applies to all tourism, hospitality and catering organisations with permanent or temporary kitchen premises or smaller food preparation or bar areas.

SITXFSA002 Participate in safe food handling practices

This unit is for staff handling food or food safety supervisors working in tourism, hospitality and catering organisations.

What does the course cover?

SITXFSA001 Use hygienic practices for food safety

The unit covers the skills and knowledge required to use personal hygiene practices to prevent contamination of food that might cause food-borne illnesses. It will assist food handlers to comply with the requirements contained within the Australia New Zealand Food Standards (ANZFS) Code (the Code).
