Im Alert - Food safety training

I'M ALERT - Food safety training is now available through the Mackay Regional Council website.

The Mackay Regional Council takes food hygiene within our region very seriously. All food businesses have obligations and the Mackay Regional Council is assisting food businesses to meet these obligations by providing free access to this exciting new training tool. Council has subscribed to this online program which enables food handlers to complete training for free, in their own time and at a location of their choosing, thereby reducing costs for the food business and improving productivity.

Council highly recommends any person (food handlers as well as Food Safety Supervisors) involved in the food industry to complete this training program. It is also ideal for anyone in the community to do as it can help improve your skills when cooking in the kitchen at home for family and friends.

There is a high demand for training within the food sector. This training will assist food handlers in developing the required skills and knowledge to ensure food is handled in a safe and hygienic manner. The program is easy to follow, includes an entertaining presentation as well as interactive quizzes. A training acknowledgement form can be printed upon completion and be kept as a part of your staff records.
