Food Safety: Skills and knowledge for food businesses

(First edition March 2002)

Guidance for food businesses on the skills and knowledge requirement of Food Safety Standard 3.2.2 Food Safety Practices and General Requirements

This is a guide to help proprietors in small food businesses understand the legal requirement for skills and knowledge in food safety and food hygiene.

The Food Safety Standards require food businesses in Australia to make sure that food handlers and supervisors of food handling operations within their business have skills and knowledge of food safety and food hygiene for the work that they do. The only exemption is for food handlers involved in charitable or community fundraising events that sell food that is not potentially hazardous or that will be eaten immediately after being cooked thoroughly.
