It's your responsibilityWhen you prepare or serve food to someone, their safety is in your hands. You have a responsibility to protect them from getting sick (or worse) from food-borne illness.
It's a legal requirementAll Food Handlers must be trained in food safety. Plus, for most food businesses in Australia there needs to be one or more nominated Food Safety Supervisors. It's the law.
You need to be up to dateWhen food safety laws change or there's a product recall, you need to know. If you're an AIFS member, you'll receive all the food safety information you need.
You're a role modelIf you've been at your workplace for a while, new employees will observe your actions and behave in the same way. By showing good food safety you'll be a role model for the whole business.
You'll impress your employerNot only will your boss be confident that you're protecting the business and it's customers, they'll be impressed with the food safety signage you'll receive after completing an AIFS course.
You'll boost your career prospectsHaving a nationally recognised course on your resume is impressive. Food Safety Supervisors are in high demand and this course may allow you to move into more senior or leadership roles.
