If you’re looking to sharpen your food handling skills or maybe boost your chances at a new career in the food industry, act now and book into Hawkesbury City Council’s food handling seminar. It will be held on Wednesday, 26 October 2016 from 10am to 1pm at Windsor RSL.

According to the Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Mary Lyons-Buckett, attending the seminars can help people to improve food safety whether it is in the home or the food industry.

“Anyone who is concerned about food safety would benefit from this seminar,” Councillor Lyons-Buckett said.

“There are also specific food legislation requirements for people who are working or seeking to work in the food industry to help people to understand their legal obligation when handling food.”

“Our experienced trainers can help people gain the information and skills they need to cover them for working in the food industry,” the Mayor added.

Topics covered in the three hour seminar include personal hygiene, time and temperature, food preparation and storage, and cleaning and maintenance. All participants receive an informative summary kit as well as a Certificate of Attendance.

Bookings are essential, visit https://www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au/environment/health-and- safety/food- handling-training to book online. Courses are held at the Windsor RSL Club, corner of Argyle & Mileham Streets, South Windsor at a low cost of $51.50 per participant.

Some food handling activities in larger workplaces, in manufacturing, and in high risk food categories will require an accredited food safety certificate seminar rather than a certificate seminar.

All attendees will receive confirmation of the seminar once sufficient attendance numbers are reached.
