All food handler need to attend and passed competent in Food Safety Course Level 1.
A food handler is any person who handles and prepares food and beverages in food establishments licensed by Singapore Food Agency (SFA). Chefs, sous chefs, cooks, kitchen assistants, food stall assistants, and food manufacturing workers are considered food handlers as they are primarily involved in food manufacturing and preparation. Food manufacturing and preparation may involve activities such as culturing, canning, deboning, cutting, defrosting, cooking, packing of food in raw or cooked form, among others.
Managers (e.g. restaurant manager, operations manager, food manufacturing factory manager, quality assurance/control manager), captains, waiters, cashiers, dishwashers, cleaners, logistics staff, maintenance staff, technologists (e.g. food technologist, laboratory technologist, quality assurance/control technologist) and other service staff are generally not considered food handlers as they are not directly involved in food manufacturing and preparation. They will be considered as food handlers only if they are also involved in the handling and preparation of food and beverages.
