Having a Food Safety Supervisor is a legal requirement of the Food Act 2006. This requirement has been in effect since 1 July 2008.
Guidelines prepared by Queensland Health encourage Food Safety Supervisors to undertake training in food safety and management practices. However, this is not a legal requirement.
Council strongly recommends that Food Safety Supervisors undertake training to provide a higher level of protection for the food business. If you would like further information regarding Food Safety Supervisor training please contact your industry association or a registered training organisation through the National Training Information Service (NTIS).
