What is the course about?

A food safety supervisor is a person who has advanced food safety skills and knowledge and the responsibility to oversee food safety operations within a food business on a day-to-day basis. Every licensed food business must have a food safety supervisor to add a level of onsite protection for food safety.

Food Safety is everyone’s responsibility. For people working in a food processing operation, it is paramount they understand food safety hazards and the controls in place to prevent any occurrence.
It is also important in any food processing operation that employees have a comprehensive knowledge of food safety requirements. This course provides an excellent steppingstone for advanced food handlers in the food processing sector to upskill and advance to a supervisory role.

Upon completion of the training, participants will:


  • know how to recognise, stop and reduce food safety hazards of the business
  • be trained with the skills and knowledge of food safety matters that relevant to the business
  • have the authority to supervise and give directions about food safety matters to other staff
  • be reasonably available to be contacted while the food business is operating by:
