Our next 3-Day Practical Food Safety & HACCP workshop is August 16-18, 2016 in Boise. Learn more about the event here or click the button below to register.
HACCP or Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points, is a preventive system for the control of health threatening biological, chemical, and physical food hazards during food processing. This is a comprehensive, three-day workshop, designed for those individuals responsible for implementing and managing a HACCP system in a food manufacturing facility. Participants who pass a final test will receive a certificate of completion.
Day One of the workshop covers prerequisite food safety programs. Prerequisites ensure products are free from objectionable hazards and ensures a sanitary food processing environment. Interactive sessions show how to implement programs such as Good Manufacturing Practices, Sanitation, and Pest Control. The final two days focus on how to develop a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan and implement a HACCP System. Participants will learn the five preliminary tasks, the seven key HACCP principles, and how to build a HACCP plan with product description, flowcharts, hazard analysis, and a critical control point matrix.
Day two includes a discussion on the Food Safety Modernization Act, and covers the new proposed Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based
Preventive Controls regulation and impacts on HACCP systems.
The course and the instructor are accredited by the International HACCP Alliance (IHA). Third party auditors and customers look for accredited HACCP training when reviewing a company’s food safety management system.
Who Should Attend
Maintenance Managers, Production Supervisors, Production Leads, Sanitation Supervisors, Plant Managers, Quality Assurance Coordinators & Managers, Safety Managers, Training Supervisors, Lead Technicians, Packaging Supervisors & Managers.
Why You Should Attend
Participants who pass a final test receive a certificate of completion from the University of Idaho, which includes the certification seal of the International HACCP Alliance. Companies also receive key information on how HACCP systems will need to be revised to meet the requirements of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), Current Good Manufacturing Practices and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation.
An understanding and working knowledge of HACCP and quality management systems within the relevant manufacturing/processing environment would be an advantage as would the Introduction to Food Safety and HACCP Workshop.
The workshop fee covers all course materials, a Certificate of Completion, full breakfast on day 1, continental breakfast on days 2 and 3, lunch, snacks, coffee, soda and tea. Coffee service includes coffee, decaf coffee and assortment of teas.
