Food and hospitality workplace safety training available online


New fully online training has been launched to the hospitality industry by the sector’s Industry Training Organisation, ServiceIQ.

Hospo Safe is a comprehensive staff induction product to help employers with food and workplace safety training. It has been tailor-made to help meet the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act and the Food Act. The training is in two completely online modules, each taking between two and three hours (depending on previous knowledge and experience).

Being online means that staff can complete the training anywhere and at any time. It has been designed so that even new staff can be trained before they start work.

The training is $90 per person ($103.50 plus GST). It is available to all employers in New Zealand’s hospitality or other service sectors.

The two modules have been created by ServiceIQ’s team of in-house experts, with input from industry, meaning that they are perfect for New Zealand’s hospitality operators, no matter the type or size of business.

The Food Safety module upskills staff in food-related hazards and pathogens, allergens, temperature, handwashing, cleaning and sanitising, and more. The Health, Safety and Security module includes legal responsibilities and rights, workplace hazards, manual handling, accident and injury, emergencies, and customer and premises security.

The training can be purchased online here, and full details of what the training covers are here.
