The development of a food safety program for an aged care facility needs to consider many factors, including meeting specific legislative requirements, such as the “Food Service to Vulnerable Persons Standard”. Your food safety program must accurately reflect your aged care facility’s processes, and capture all food safety hazards that are reasonably expected to occur.
To verify your food safety program meets these requirements, and that your employees are complying with the food safety program, your facility will be subject to ongoing compliance audits conducted by your state authorities or an approved representative.
The team at Food Aware Australia are skilled and very experienced in developing site specific food safety programs that not only meet, but exceed the expected requirements. We have an extensive history of developing food safety programs of the highest quality, whilst taking a practical approach. One of our key objectives is to develop a food safety program that will effectively support your daily food handling operations.
Our aged care food safety programs are developed exclusively for each individual facility, accurately reflecting the food handling processes being undertaken. We will conduct a detailed assessment of your facility before development and work in consultation with key members of your team. This ensures the program is best for you and provides confidence of a successful implementation.
Once developed, our team can assist with implementation, employee training, ongoing program reviews, amendments, internal auditing and third party regulatory auditing.
If your aged care facility requires a new food safety program, or you would like your current program to be reviewed and updated, please contact a member of our team to discuss your individual needs.
