Assessment Task 2: Safe food handling observations

Information for students

  Tasks required for this unit This unit of competency requires that you: use safe food handling practices including the correct methods of controlling food hazards at each of the following critical control points:
receivingstoringpreparingprocessingdisplayingservingpackagingtransportingdisposing.
follow procedures to calibrate temperature probe to ensure accuracy

Instructions for how you will complete these requirements are included below.
SITXFSA006 Participate In Safe Food Practices

Activities

Complete the following activities.

  1. Carefully read the following information.

Prior to commencing these three observations, review the kitchen’s food safety program. You will be required to follow these procedures throughout the entire task and you will be assessed on this.

This task is to be completed in the kitchen environment. Your assessor will ensure you have access to all the relevant equipment and resources. Completion of this assessment will ensure that you demonstrate safe handling food procedures and practices and follow the kitchen’s policies and procedures and their food safety program. You will demonstrate this on three different occasions:

  • Occasion 1: receiving and storing food and calibrating temperature probe
    • Occasion 2: preparing/processing, displaying, serving, packaging and transporting food
    • Occasion 3: cleaning up and disposing of food.

These tasks may be assessed in conjunction with one or more of the practical units you are completing and your assessor will advise you of this if this will be the case.

What do I need to demonstrate?

During your practical assessments you will be required to demonstrate a range of the skills and knowledge that you have developed during your course. These include:

  • access and use organisational information from the organisations food safety program
    • follow policies and procedures in food safety program
    • control food hazards at the critical control points
    • monitor food safety processes
    • complete required documentation
    • identify and report unsafe practices or incidents of food contamination
    • take actions to fix incidents when within job role
    • store food safety
    • store food in appropriate conditions that protect against contamination and maximise freshness, quality and appearance
    • protect supplies from damage of cross-contamination and pests
    • use cooling and heating processes that support safety of food
  • monitor food temperature during preparation using required temperature measuring device
    • ensure safety of food prepared, served and sold to customers
    • prepare food to meet customer requirements, including actions to address allergen requests by customers
    • store, display and provide single use items so they are protected from damage and contamination
    • follow instructions for items intended for single use
    • clean and sanitise equipment, surfaces and utensils
    • use appropriate storage containers
    • do not let garbage build up and recycled where required
    • identify and report cleaning, sanitising and maintenance requirements
    • dispose of, or report damaged or unsafe utensils
    • ensure food handling areas are free from animals and pests and report incidents of animal or pest infestation
    • mark and separate from other foodstuffs any food identified for disposal
    • follow procedures and dispose of food promptly to avoid cross-contamination
    • use appropriate documentation to record disposed food items
    • follow procedures to calibrate temperature probes to make sure it is accurate
    • use appropriate forms to report food hazards

How will I provide evidence?

Your assessor will observe you as you handle food safely during the storage, preparation, display, service and disposal of food and complete the required forms from the food safety program.

  • Observation 1: Receive and store food.
During this observation you need to: receive the ingredients for the dishes you are required to preparestore the ingredients receivedcalibrate the temperature probe using the ice point check.
Using the order form you have been provided with, check the food items to make sure all items ordered are included in the delivery. There will also be single use items included in the order. Follow all of the procedures as per the Food Safety Program.
  • Observation 2: Prepare and process food.
Text Box: During this observation you need to:
•	prepare your dishes
•	process / cook your dishes
•	calibrate temperature probe using the boiling point check
•	package your dishes
•	serve and/or display your dishes
•	transport your dishes.
As part of your preparation, carry out the activities that are required as part of preparing to make the dish.
As you prepare your dish, explain to your assessor at least two food hazards that can occur during the preparation of food and demonstrate how you control them. You will also be required to explain, as well as demonstrate the cooling/heating processes you use to ensure food safety.
Use a digital thermometer to measure the temperature throughout the preparation process and complete the temperature control log.
Re-calibrate the digital thermometer to ensure it is working correctly using the boiling point check. You need to identify and report any faults. If the thermometer is working correctly, explain to your assessor the process as if the thermometer is not accurate
  • Observation 3: Clean up and disposal.

The final part of this task requires you to demonstrate safe working practices when cleaning up and disposing of items from the food preparation activity you completed prior to this.

As a minimum you must:

  • clean and sanitise all surfaces, equipment and utensils used in making the dishes you prepared
    • use the appropriate receptacles for food waste, rubbish and recycling
    • check the bins for overflow and action accordingly
    • dispose of broken or cracked items
    • check for animal or pest infestation and record your findings in the pest log
    • separate the food items that cannot be immediately disposed of and label and store
    • dispose of all food items promptly and correctly
    • dispose of any food contamination following organisational procedures
    • complete appropriate form for reporting hazards, including actions taken to resolve
    • complete the cleaning log at the end of the process, ensuring you report any maintenance issues.

Your assessor will set up some hazards for you to identify, report and act on. Your assessor will provide you with:

  • a cleaning log
    • a pest log
