Companies must provide effective Food Safety training for all employees including managers, supervisors, sanitation employees and production employees in order to produce a safe quality food product. Proper Environmental Cleaning is just as important as the cleaning of the "inside" of food processing equipment. The exterior of equipment, floors, walls, ceilings, doorways and drains can be a major source of microbial contamination if not properly controlled.
This presentation will review sources of Environmental Contaminants and the basic steps used to control these contaminants. All levels of management and workers need to understand Environmental Cleaning to achieve the goal of food products free of microbial contamination.
Why should you Attend: FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) is the first significant update and expansion of FDA's food safety regulatory powers in approximately 70 years. It is a comprehensive bill of which the focus is prevention, detection and response.
The FDA now has a legislative mandate to require comprehensive and prevention based controls across the food supply. These controls require an effective Cleaning and Sanitation Program. All of the Audit Schemes associated with FSMA call for Environmental Cleaning in a Food Plant Sanitation Program.
