Free Online & Interactive Food Safety Training – I’m Alert

The Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup is pleased to provide local food businesses and community groups with FREE and unlimited access to an exciting online tool – I’m Alert food safety training program. The program will assist food handlers in gaining valuable skills and knowledge in food safety and hygiene, which will help to ensure only safe and suitable food is produced at food businesses in the Shire.

This program is presented in an interactive, easy to follow, and entertaining format and includes the ability for the user to print off an acknowledgement form and a certificate upon completion of the program that can be kept as a part of your staff records and used to demonstrate compliance with legislative requirements.

This training program will assist food business managers in ensuring all staff are trained in this important area and thereby reducing the potential risk of food borne illness resulting from poor food handling practices.

It is recommended that all food handlers within each food business take part in this training. This is a great opportunity for businesses to provide staff with free training that would otherwise cost money and a great deal more in time.
