A Food Safety Supervisor is a person who:
- is trained to recognise and prevent risks associated with food handling in a retail food business
- holds a current FSS certificate (no more than five years old),
- is not an FSS for any other food premises or mobile catering business, and
- can train and supervise other people in the business about safe food handling practices.
Food Safety Supervisors will need to complete training in 2 units of competency within the Vocational Education and Training (VET) system, and hold a current FSS certificate. The legislation also requires refresher training every five years.
