Anaphylaxis Awareness and Training for Local Sporting Clubs

In May 2016 the Victorian Coroner released a report on the investigation into the death of Jack Glen Irvine on 30 September 2012. Jack Irvine, who was 15 years old at the time of his death, suffered a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) at a junior development sports camp.

In response to the Coroner’s findings the Department seeks to encourage sporting club officials, staff and volunteers to complete allergy and anaphylaxis training. Clubs may also need to be reminded to review their procedures on how to safely conduct camps involving children, including the safe provision of food to children with known food allergies.

Information, and a free anaphylaxis etraining course, developed by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy
(ASCIA) and additional information and a link to this resource is available on the Sport and Recreation Victoria website at http://www.sport.vic.gov.au/…/spo…/food-safety-and-allergies.

Food allergens and their identification and management in relation to food businesses, which includes sporting clubs, has been identified by the department’s Food Safety Unit as a priority area for policy and resource development for regulators, industry and the public. As such, further food allergen information and resources will be developed over the next two to three years and provided to council environmental health officers by the Food Safety Unit.

Further information regarding food allergen management for food businesses please contact Fiona Jones, Manager, Regulation and Incident Management, Food Safety on telephone 9096 5098 or email fiona.jones@dhhs.vic.gov.au
