There will be a need for those Food Safety Supervisors in NSW retail and hospitality businesses who require a Food Safety Supervisor to "refresh" their training in order to receive a new NSWFA FSS certificate.Current certificates are valid for 5 years. The NSWFA FSS program started in September 2010, thus the refresher training arrangements need to be in place with RTO's by September 2015.
The NSWFA is still finalising arrangements for the refresher program but the refresher training will target 3 major content areas:
- Allergen Management
- Cleaning and Sanitising
- Handling eggs safely
Those reapplying for their NSW FSS certificate, when they expire will need to achieve recognition of current competence in the accreditted units of competence that are relevant to their workplace ( retail or hospitality) as well as the skills and knowledge in the above 3 content areas.
Associate company Correct Training Systems will ensure refresher training and Food Safety Supervisor training arrangement are compliant with the NSW Food Authority and clients are kept informed of requirements and arrangements.
