Food Safety Training

I'M ALERT

I'M ALERTAll food businesses have obligations to produce safe food and Council is assisting food businesses to meet these obligations by providing free access to the I'M ALERT online food safety training tool. Refer to the I'M ALERT frequently asked questions (PDF 720 KB) fact sheet for more information.

I'M ALERT is easy to follow, includes an entertaining presentation as well as interactive quizzes. A training acknowledgement form can be printed and emailed upon completion and be kept as a part of your staff records.

The training has been designed to be completed in one session; however you can select only a few sections and receive a certificate just for those completed. You will need to enter the site again at a later time to complete the rest of the training. Please note the system will not remember any of your previous settings or the sections you had already completed.

Conduct the training now by visiting EHA I'M ALERT.

Council is interested in your feedback on the I'M ALERT program. Complete our I'M ALERT Training Feedback survey.
