videoAccording to the Food Safety Authority of Australia and New Zealand, some 11,500 consumers are affected by food borne diseases each day.
Under the Food Safety Standard 3.3.2 Food Safety Practices and General Requirements, food businesses must ensure their food handlers do not contaminate food. Food businesses also have specific responsibilities relating to the health of the people who handle food. These include the provision of hand washing facilities and informing food handlers of their health and hygiene obligations. The program explains the best methods to achieve compliance with this new standard.
"ACHS is pleased to support the release of the video on food handling as a tool for use in the training of staff in the health industry. The promotion of best practice is an important objective for all staff."
