Workers and supervisors in the foodservice industry, but also for employees who have other people in their care, food safety is of paramount importance. This awareness course is not designed to replace specialized training, but rather to serve a way to familiarize employees with the dangers of food poisoning and the measures that can be implemented to avoid the latter.

What Is Food Safety Awareness?
Although the Food Safety Awareness program does not represent a substitute for FoodSafe 1 & 2 Food Handlers Certifications, it can be of assistance for employees and those who are in charge of the health and safety of others. Caregivers, for example, routinely help seniors and/or children select and prepare their meals. As such, they should be able to identify food safety hazards and take preventative measures to avoid foodborne illnesses.
Who Needs Food Safety Awareness Training?
All workers who handle food on a daily basis must undergo specialized Food Safety training. However, some employees working in other industries can benefit from an awareness course that draws their attention to the potential dangers of consuming spoiled products. This program is an affordable solution for businesses seeking to improve food safety standards, but employees or potential job candidates can also complete the course individually.
Certain industries are more likely to require Food Safety Awareness training. These include:
- Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare,
- Agriculture & Food,
- Hospitality & Tourism,
- Education & Research.
Who Is Responsible for Food Safety Awareness Training?
In Canada, businesses are required to ensure a safe work environment for all employees, although workers who carry out specialized tasks can also be penalized if they do so without proper training. The responsibility is therefore shared between the employer and the employee.
On the one hand, the employer must provide access to Food Safety Awareness training where this is necessary. On the other hand, the employee must take the course, acquire important information, and apply the strategies they learn during their training in their work routines. Alternatively, job candidates who have applied for a position that may require Food Safety Awareness can complete the course on their own, prior to being hired.
What Do You Need to Learn?
To complete this awareness program, you must understand the different types of foodborne illnesses, as well as be able to describe their effects and causes. In addition, you must acquire a series of food safety practices designed to prevent cross-contamination and maintain food items in an acceptable condition.
How Long Is the Certificate Valid?
Employees who routinely handle food for their clients should re-take this course on a yearly basis. Since food poisoning can have grave consequences, especially where children and the elderly are concerned, it is essential that workers constantly update their information on the best safety practices.
What Other Courses Should I Take?
Food Safety Awareness is usually paired with Fire Safety, AODA Training, and WHMIS 2015.
