What is a Food Safety Supervisor – FSS

An important part of having a Food Safety Program is having one person who can oversee the program and the way it is used in your business. This person is called a Food Safety Supervisor (FSS). The FSS must have the food safety skills and knowledge appropriate to the processes your business does. The FSS must also have the authority to ensure that each employee who handles food has the skills and knowledge appropriate to the things they do.

The Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) must:

  • Have an accredited food safety qualifications which show they have the required competencies;
  • Be able to supervise food handling;
  • Have the authority to supervise and give instructions to food handlers and
  •  Ensure food handlers know how to handle food safely and hygienically.

Each state has a legislated requirement for FSS depending on the type of business they are involved with and this is normally administered by the local council or shire.
