Is food handled in your workplace? Do employees know how to follow and apply safe workplace procedures, to reduce the likelihood of food contamination?

Food poisoning is a serious matter. In fact, a 2008 report by Oz Food Net estimated that 5.4 million occur each year in Australia. It is the responsibility of employers and food handlers to follow hygiene procedures that minimise the risk of food being contaminated while it is being prepared and served.

If food is handled in your workplace, is it being handled safely? Do employees have an adequate understanding of how to properly follow and apply safe workplace procedures, to reduce the likelihood of food contamination?
