Onsite Food Safety Training – Child Care Centres
Food safety training is vital when maintaining the highest possible standards of food safety in a child care environment. Children under the age of four are more at risk of food poisoning. This risk increases with many child care centres handling and serving potentially hazardous food.
It is important to remember that a food handler is not only defined as the person in the kitchen who directly prepares food. It also includes any person that handles plates, cups, cutlery or anything that is likely to come into direct contact with food.
Ensuring your food handlers have the correct skills and knowledge to complete their food handling tasks safely, is both a legal and moral obligation.
Food safety training for the child care industry is specialised and needs to meet specific learning outcomes. Our team at Food Aware Australia provide practical and effective onsite food safety training courses, which are specially developed to meet your needs.
Onsite Food Safety Training – Schools
Maintaining basic food safety standards in a school canteen can be challenging as many canteens rely on volunteers and members of their P&C to run the daily operations.
A school canteen is defined as a food business and most must be registered with the local council, therefore food safety standards based on relevant legislation must be met.
Many school canteens across Australia have adopted a cook fresh approach, processed foods such as pies and sausage rolls are no longer served, and healthier options are available. The concept of healthy home style cooking, or the encouragement of fresh food is without a doubt extremely positive, however it does increase handling when storing, preparing, processing and serving potentially hazardous foods. The additional handling of food increases the risk of contamination, which can result in a food poising incident.

Food Safety Training Materials – Child Care Centres & Schools
To meet a growing industry need, Food Aware Australia have developed a comprehensive food safety training package that is specific for the child care and school sectors, and is designed to reflect your individual training needs.
The aim of our food safety training materials is to provide a training program that can be delivered by an onsite facilitator, on any day, for any length of time, to any amount of attendees.
Our food safety training resource package includes 5 separate modules that cover all aspects of food safety in a systematic manner.
Before the food safety training program is developed, a consultation is undertaken to assess your training goals and the desired content of your food safety training materials.
Additional inclusions consist of detailed trainer’s notes, learning outcomes, certificates of professional development and an assessment task for each module.
