What is a Food Safety Supervisor?

Understand your responsibilities and legal requirements

Food Safety Supervisor

A Food Safety Supervisor is someone who has the appropriate food safety training to supervise food safety in a business. Food Safety Supervisors are mainly responsible for:

  • supervising food handling staff
  • maintaining the Food Safety Program
  • ensuring safe food handling practices across the business

As a Registered Training Organisation, the Australian Institute of Food Safety has been approved to deliver Food Safety Supervisor training for every food sector across Australia.

This means that when you train with AIFS, you can feel secure knowing your qualification:

  • is compliant
  • will be accepted by local councils Australia-wide
  • is recommended by Health Inspectors

Helping the Community

Your enrolment will help to feed two people in need

1 in 10 Australians rely on food aid each year, yet in Australia we throw out $10bn of food annually. Together we can help to tackle this issue.

Your enrolment = 2 meals to those in need

We've partnered with OzHarvest to help deliver meals to people facing hunger issues in the Australian community.

When you sign up for the official AIFS Food Safety Supervisor course, we'll provide OzHarvest with the resources to donate 2 meals to those in need.
