Course Overview

This course describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to handle food safely during the storage, preparation, display, service and disposal of food. It requires the ability to follow predetermined procedures as outlined in a food safety program.

The course applies to all organisations with permanent or temporary kitchen premises or smaller food preparation areas. This includes:

  • restaurants and cafes
  • clubs
  • and hotels
  • tour operators
  • attractions
  • function, event, exhibition and conference catering
  • educational institutions
  • aged care facilities
  • correctional centres
  • hospitals
  • defence forces
  • cafeterias, kiosks, canteens and fast food outlets
  • residential catering
  • in-flight and other transport catering.

Safe food handling practices are based on an organisation’s individual food safety program. The program would normally be based on the hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) method, but this unit can apply to other food safety systems.

It applies to food handlers who directly handle food during the course of their daily work activities. This includes cooks, chefs, caterers, kitchen hands and food and beverage attendants.

It may also be required to hold these units under local council legislation and/ or be nominated by their business to undertake this as mandatory training.

Students must hold SITXFSA001 Use hygienic practices for food safety as a prerequisite for this Course.

Food handlers must comply with the requirements contained within the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.

In some States and Territories, businesses are required to designate a food safety supervisor who is required to be certified as competent in this unit through a registered training organisation.

Food safety legislative and knowledge requirements may differ across borders. Those developing training to support this unit must consult the relevant state or territory food safety authority to determine any accreditation arrangements for courses, trainers and assessors.
