Is Your Food Safety Knowledge Up To Date?


Did you know that new food safety legislation 3.2.2a was enacted at the end of 2023?

If you have a hospitality business or your job or volunteer position require serving food or beverages, this is what you need to know.

  1. The first thing you need to know is that food handler training is now compulsory. Food businesses must now demonstrate that they have trained their staff.
  2. It remains that every food business needs a certified food safety supervisor.
  3. Compliant record-keeping is now also a requirement. Food businesses will need to maintain compliant records in relation to preparation of any food that will be consumed by customers or the public.

The easiest way to make sure that you are compliant in all these areas is to do some accredited training – and that’s what we do at AVTES! We deliver both food safety courses at AVTES, you can check them out here. The introductory level course is called the Food Handler Certificate and is suitable for all staff involved in the preparation or serving of food. The course for supervisors is called Food Safety Supervisor Certificate.

Being accredited training, they tick all the boxes and ensure that you have all the knowledge and can demonstrate all the skills to handle food safely. And that you can also prove that to any EHO that comes in and visits your venue.

We’ve got these courses online now, which means that you can do them at your own convenience. They’re really quick and easy to do. The Food Handler Certificate is only $65. And the Food Safety Supervisor is only $130. You also get the support of a trainer if you need it to answer any questions you have along the way.
