Classroom & Online Food Safety Culture TrainingDeveloping a Positive Culture of Food Safety
Whether you realize it or not, every company has some type of culture that resonates throughout its employees! What’s that culture like? Is it positive or negative? Is food safety part of that culture? Our classroom and online food safety culture
course will discuss the different components of a plan as defined by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)
as well as topics in employee engagement and retention, change management, establishing better “tiny habits” throughout your organization and how to take those ever important “first steps” to creating a culture of food safety!
In-person food safety culture trainingDeveloping a Positive Safety Culture in a Classroom Setting
For those who need to step away from the office in order to focus on the details of how to build a good food safety culture, classroom (in-person) training is a great option. Unlike online training, classroom training allows attendees to learn using a more traditional, hands-on approach with physical access to the instructor. Classroom training is also a great way to network with your peers and gain additional education through peer knowledge-sharing during class breaks and after hour events.
Online food safety culture trainingDeveloping a Positive Safety Culture Through Online Training
Online food safety culture training is a great alternative to in-person training. Online training reduces the travel costs of attending a public course and can be done from anywhere there is internet access, a webcam and a computer. Our online training course is still “live” and in “real-time” so you still have the ability to ask questions during the training. Online culture training is also a great option for those who are under travel restrictions or just simply prefer the online environment.
Course DescriptionDeveloping a Positive Safety Culture
A food safety culture plan has become an essential element for food companies to manage and implement within their organizations. A positive company environment not only helps with employee morale, but it also helps with increasing food safety awareness and best practices which ultimately reduces risk and the potential for every food company’s worst nightmare…a recall!
Third party food safety audits, particularly GFSI audits, are now requiring that companies have an effective culture plan in place to continuously improve efforts to make food safely. Culture is not a “one size fits all” program and can be customized for each company individually. In our classroom and online food safety culture training courses, attendees will be challenged to think about what their current safety culture is like and ultimately how that culture can continue to move forward and in a positive direction. Attendees will have the opportunity to work on a personalized culture plan during the exercise portions of the course.
