Food safety training

It is the responsibility of you and your staff to ensure compliance with all requirements of the Food Act 2006 and the Food Standards Code.

The completion of food safety training assists in improving food safety work practices in the workplace. All persons undertaking food handling operations within a food business must have appropriate skills and knowledge in food safety matters.

Food safety training services and resources are available from various sources including inhouse, external providers and training organisations.

A series of fact sheets and guidelines to help you meet your obligations under the Food Act 2006 are available. Visit Queensland Government’s Food Act compliance – Information for businesses
