What should I do after completing my Food Safety Supervisor training?

If you haven’t already done so, you need to notify the local council that you’re the nominated Food Safety Supervisor for the business where you work. This might be something that you do, or it might be done by your employer.

Or, if you’re starting a new food business, you’ll need to show the local council evidence that you’ve completed the course in order to apply for your food business licence, such as your Food Safety Supervisor Statement of Attainment.

Once you’ve done that, the next step is to create or review the business’s Food Safety Program and to start implementing food safety controls and procedures in the business.

At the Australian Institute of Food Safety, we’ve put together a number of handy guides to help you get started in your new role:
