...had obviously taken the time to investigate the issues...
Andrew gave an informative and thoughtful presentation at the New Zealand Institute of Environmental Health Conference, held at Massey University in Wellington. This conference attracts Environmental Health professionals from the whole of New Zealand. He had obviously taken the time to investigate the issues and combined with the fact Andrew had come from Australia helped him present some differing perspectives to us.

"...focused on real life application of the legislative requirements..."
To me, this indicates a high level of value from your training session. The group was focused on real life application of the legislative requirements that you presented and were able to use some of your examples provided for training to stimulate risk management thinking.I provided copies of your comprehensive resource folder to group members unable to attend the training session and this has enabled them to engage with the action planning process, providing all necessary background information. The session provided a spring board for a full review of the process in place for this group - just as described in brief.Thank you for hearing the specific needs of our group and tailoring the training appropriately
"...photos and scenarios of our factory, this assisted our staff to have a better understanding..."
Andrew’s previous knowledge of our Food Processing business enabled him to develop a personalised Food Safety course. Creating a user friendly training booklet with photos and scenarios of our factory, this assisted our staff to have a better understanding of Food Safety within their daily environment. I would highly recommend Think Solutions for all your Food Safety training needs

"...ensure the success of your business..."
If you want to make sure you have done everything possible to ensure the success of your business this guide is an excellent start. No one wants to go through a major food poisoning event in their business as there are only two possible outcomes and they are you could actually lose your business or it may take years to recover and regain the confidence of your customers whether that be in a Healthcare or restaurant environment. Even in the best run business there are no absolute guarantees that you won’t go through one of these events, but using this well researched guide you will minimise your risk and be able to provide the evidence required to show that you have taken every possible precaution in keeping your customers safe.

"...Andrew is to be congratulated for his innovative approach..."
I was most pleased when Andrew accepted an invitation to speak at our annual state conference. His presentation on food safety centred on the essence of frustration experienced by many environmental health officers when assessing the skills and knowledge of food handlers and encouraging business proprietors to manage their businesses at acceptable hygienic standards at all times. The tools that are now available through Think ST Solutions to assist both the food industry and regulators alike to achieve and maintain acceptable standards of cleanliness and hygiene in the food industry are long overdue. Andrew is to be congratulated for his innovative approach in providing these much needed tools for industry.

"...not only of great interest to EHOs..."
The 66th annual Environmental Health Australia (WA) Inc state conference was an outstanding success due in part to the large attendance from local Environmental Health Officers but also to the calibre of speakers (in which Andrew was one) and the variety of sponsors presenting in the breakout rooms of the South Perth Esplanade Hotel. From the feedback that was received in the post conference survey, it was identified that Andrew and the products and services that his company provides were not only of great interest to EHOs in WA but also considered to a potentially valuable tool in the food safety delivery system for businesses to adopt where they are facing difficulty understanding and adopting the Regulations and Code (FSANZ FSS).
I have no doubt that anyone who adopts the procedures that have been developed by Andrew and Think ST Solutions will be able to comply with the requirements of the Code and the LGA.
