Regis Aged Care engaged Food Safety Plus to undertake food safety audits of its 5 facilities in Western Australia.

Food Safety in Aged Care

The food supply in Australia is among the safest in the world. However, when certain disease causing bacteria or pathogens contaminate food, they can cause foodborne illness, often called "food poisoning." The Commonwealth government estimates that there are about 5.4 million cases of foodborne illness annually — the equivalent of sickening 1 in 5 Australians each year. Although everyone is susceptible, the elderly are at greater risk for developing foodborne illness. Since 1995 there have more than 70 foodborne illness outbreaks in Australian aged-care facilities, childcare centres and hospitals with 800 illnesses and 80 fatalities. In the USA, rates of foodborne illness can be 10 to 100 times greater for elderly people within nursing homes when compared to the general population.

As people age, their immune system becomes sluggish in recognising and ridding the body of harmful bacteria and other pathogens that cause infections, such as foodborne illness. Many older adults have also been diagnosed with one or more chronic conditions, such as diabetes, arthritis, cancer, or cardiovascular disease, and are taking at least one medication. The chronic disease process and/or the side effects of some medications may also weaken the immune system.

Food Standard 3.3.1 requires Australian food businesses that prepare food for service to vulnerable people to implement a food safety program. In this example a vulnerable person is defined as a person who receives care from aged care facilities including nursing homes, respite care, same day aged care and low care aged care facilities.

Regis Aged Care - one of the largest providers of aged care services in Australia.

In 2014 Regis Aged Care engaged Food Safety Plus to undertake food safety audits of its 5 facilities in Western Australia and has consistently achieved positive audit outcomes. To facilitate effective food safety practices Regis has developed and implemented a food safety program which systematically identifies food safety hazards including physical, chemical (incl. allergens) and microbial hazards. The food safety plan also details procedures such as pre-requisite programs (health, hygiene, cleaning, pest control etc) and specific controls such as:

• Personal hygiene of food handlers

• Time and temperature control.

• Substitution of high risk foods with lower risk alternatives

• Effective cleaning and sanitation of fruits and vegetables to be consumed raw

• Minimise storage times of foods to be consumed without further heat treatment

• Proper cooking of foods

• Effective cleaning and sanitation of equipment, in particular those used for foods that will not receive a further heat treatment eg purees.

Importantly the food safety program is reviewed annually and its effectiveness measured by regular internal audits.

2015-09-30 Food Safety

The World Health Organisation (WHO) is recently promoted World Health Day with the theme “From Farm to Plate, Make Food Safe."

The World Health Organisation (WHO) is recently promoted World Health Day with the theme “From Farm to Plate, Make Food Safe.” WHO estimates that unsafe food is linked to the deaths of 2 million people annually – including many children. Food containing harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemical substances can cause more than 200 diseases, ranging from diarrhoea to cancers, a major health concern for all people on the planet.

Even though our food supply in the Australia is among the safest in the world, the Commonwealth Department of Health estimates that there are about 5.4 million annual cases of foodborne illness. Each year these illnesses result in an estimated 128,000 hospitalizations and 125 deaths. The people most likely to become ill from unsafe food, and to be hospitalized or die as a result, are older Australian, very young children, pregnant women, and people with illness or medical treatments that affect their immune systems, such as diabetes, cancer, HIV/AIDS, and organ transplants.

Foodborne illnesses occur because of environmental pollution or mishandling somewhere along the food chain from farm to table. Food may become unsafe because of contaminants in soil or water or inadequate safety measures in processing, transportation, or storage. It can also occur because of unsafe handling by workers in the food industry, or by consumers preparing food at home. Ensuring the safety of our food supply requires a farm-to-table approach. This means we are all a part of the food chain—including farmers, processors, transporters, retailers and food service workers, and consumers—and have responsibility for minimizing the risk of food contamination and helping to lower the danger of foodborne illness.

Legislation requires all food handlers and their supervisors to have appropriate skills and knowledge

Food hygiene legislation requires all food handlers to receive appropriate supervision, and be instructed and trained in food hygiene to enable them to handle food safely.

Anyone handling food and drink within the catering sector must be trained in food safety and hygiene and apply it to their work. In order to ensure that your workplace is in compliance with the main general food law requirements, including the provisions on food safety, you must keep up to date with legislation. Being familiar with the handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent food-borne illness, will allow your workplace to operate legally and help your understanding of the number of routines that should be followed to avoid potentially severe health hazards. 

Food safety and food hygiene courses are aimed at anyone working in a role that involves contact with food, or the management of such people; and include regulations which require that anyone involved in food handling must be appropriately trained in food safety. Our food safety and hygiene courses are generally delivered at a variety of levels and tailored to all sectors including Induction, Awareness, Refresher and Advanced Training.
