SIRRFSA001 Handle food safely in a retail environment 


The NSW Food Safety Supervisor program helps businesses meet their obligations under Standard 3.2.2 of the Food Standards Code, which requires all food handlers to have skills and knowledge appropriate to the tasks they undertake while handling food.

Retail and hospitality food businesses selling ready-to-eat, potentially hazardous foods that are handled by the business (i.e. not received and sold as packaged) before sale must appoint at least one Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) per premises. Broadly, this includes all businesses selling potentially hazardous food (temperature controlled) to the public that are not licensed by the Food Authority.

The appointed FSS needs to have achieved specific national units of competency under the Vocational Education Training system. Training is delivered by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) approved by the NSW Food Authority to ensure high quality training and consistent outcomes.

ATS is an approved Registered Training Organisation, specialising in providing nationally recognised Food Safety Training for the food and retail industries.

Let ATS help you train your staff to become nationally recognised Food Safety Supervisors for your business. Whether it be a pub, club, restaurant, café, bakery, caterers, takeaways, or supermarket selling hot food, this is the course you need.
