Hawkesbury City Council
Food Handling Seminar
23 October 2019, 10.00am-1.00pm
Hawkesbury Leisure & Learning Centre, 114 March St, Richmond
This seminar is valuable to people currently employed, or seeking employment in the food industry in the Hawkesbury area.
Current food legislation requires all workers in a food environment to have adequate food safety "skills and knowledge" for their tasks of employment. This is to assist them in understanding their legal obligation when handling food. The course covers personal hygiene, time and temperature, food preparation and storage, and cleaning and maintenance. All participants receive an informative summary kit as well as a personalised "Certificate of Attendance".
Some food handling activities in larger workplaces, in manufacturing, and in high risk food categories require an accredited food safety certicate course. You should consider whether the certificate course is required. (Or, if your current certificate is older then 2 years, you may wish to consider Hawkesbury City Council's Seminar as a refresher).
