Environmental Health

Council's Contracted Environmental Health Officer team is responsible for the implementation of the Health Act and other related legislation, in particular food handling and control legislation applicable to businesses, community groups and their staff and volunteers. 

In an effort to ensure that all food handlers within our Shire have the appropriate skills and knowledge around food handling and hygiene, residents are able to complete a FREE online FoodSafe course, from the comfort of their own home. 

FoodSafe Online Course - Free for Shire Residents

FoodSafe is an online training course, developed by Environmental Health Australia to allow individuals who wish to work or volunteer as a food handler in any capacity, the ability to receive basic food hygiene training. 

Comprised of training videos and questions, this online training can be completed at a time that suits you, in the comfort of your own home. 

Please see the FoodSafe Online promotional video for a course preview and more information.
