ACT Health offers access to food safety training and resources.
DoFoodSafely and I’M ALERT are free online food safety training programs. Both programs provide a basic understanding of safe food handling. DoFoodSafely is available in English, Arabic, Korean, Hindi, Nepali, Punjabi, Simplified Chinese, and Vietnamese. If you complete one of these the programs, you will get a certificate.
Businesses must ensure all food handlers have the food safety skills and knowledge needed to do their job. At a minimum, it is strongly recommended that food businesses take advantage of these free online training programs. Professional training may be needed for more complex food handling activities such as sous vide and smoking meats.
All Food Safety Supervisors for food businesses operating at a declared event must complete all modules of the DoFoodSafely or I’M ALERT food safety training. This includes not-for-profit community organisations.
Please see the Food Safety Supervisors webpage for more information about Food Safety Supervisor requirements.
We have developed various resources to help you comply with ACT Food Safety Laws and standards. These resources can help you make sure the food you sell is safe for the public to eat.
These resources don’t cover all requirements set out in the local and national food laws and should not be considered legal advice.
Please call the Health Protection Service on 5124 9700 or email email@example.com to request a hardcopy of the resources.
