Food handlers’ skills and knowledge
Food businesses must ensure that all food handlers in the food business have the skills and knowledge they need to handle food safely. This means they will have skills and knowledge in food safety and food hygiene which relate to the type of work they do at the food business.
For example, a food handler that handles food only to make sandwiches, only needs to have skills and knowledge in food safety and hygiene to ensure that sandwiches are handled safely. A food handler that cooks and prepares a range of food dishes will need a greater level of skills and knowledge.
Food handlers do not need formal training.  It is up to the business owner/proprietor to make sure food handlers have the required skills and knowledge. You may:
provide staff food safety and hygiene information for them to read
develop operating rules that set out the responsibilities of food handlers and their supervisors
provide 'in house' training by the supervisor or other staff
send staff to food safety courses run by other people
hire a consultant to run a course for the staff
