Food Safety Supervisor
The Food Act 2006 requires that every licensed food business has a nominated food safety supervisor on site. A qualified food safety supervisor is required on site within 30 days of obtaining a new licence and within 14 days when there is a change of supervisor.
The nominated food safety supervisor takes the lead role in supervising food safety in the business and is required to be reasonably available at all times.
The food safety supervisor must have undertaken an accredited course with a registered training organisation (RTO) in the appropriate units of competency or the equivalent.
For more information view Council's Toolbox on Food Safety Training.
