Two new and exciting courses have come about in an effort to standardise safety in the food industry in Australia. Food Hygiene is a course that can be undertaken by anyone working in the food industry to give a clear understanding of what is required of them and others while working in the food industry. Whereas the Food Safety course is for overseeing the implementation of food safety in your workplace. The Food Safety course requires you to have first completed a Food Hygiene Course.
Although it is would be best for every member to have done a Food Hygiene Course, it is acceptable for someone to work without a Food Hygiene course certificate as long as they are being directly supervised by someone holding the Food Safety Certificate. This should only ever be done on an interim basis until the employee can undertake the Food Hygiene Course, because everyone knowing firsthand what is required of them is the safest and most thorough way of avoiding any food hygiene hazards from occurring. russian grocery store
If you are looking for a job in the food industry I would highly recommend obtaining one or both of these courses, it will put you in good stead for the job your hoping to get. Or even if you are not sure of the job for you, this short course is easy to do and will be one more thing to add to your resume. The food industry has made a huge improvement with these new courses and everyone should take advantage of the new trainable knowledge now available.
It is very easy to obtain both these courses. You can do them online or face to face, and if you are having troubles most good RTO’s (Registered Training Organisations) will be there to help you through the course as its there good to train you, not fail you. Online courses have come a long way and doing your training online will not only be more convenient for you and your employer, but you will learn a lot more in an online course then you would in a crowded face to face room. Its a personal experience with video and graphic aids to make sure you finish the course knowing exactly what is required of you at the end. Online courses still require the same identification as face to face courses, usually the only difference is emailing or faxing off your ID and your stat dec saying it was you who did the course in question.
