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. The objective of this presentation is to equip the participants with the basic skills and knowledge to properly perform a titration drop count test on food plant chemical cleaners and sanitizers. The participants will also be presented with a basic review of the most common single parameter titration test kits used on chemical detergents and sanitizers.
Examples of "Audit Enhancement Documents" will be given to all participants for use with their Titration Test Kit Program to improve sanitation program effectiveness and to maintain audit standards. The effectiveness of any sanitation program begins with the proper use of the cleaning chemical and sanitizers.
This webinar is an important step to building the knowledge for a successful chemical sanitation program for your food production operation. All levels of management and workers need to understand Chemical Titration Testing to achieve the goal of safe quality food products.
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. Food producing facilities must evaluate the hazards in their operations through implementation of effective measures to prevent contamination. The monitoring of these measures and the procedures for corrective actions must now be performed by all food processing operations.
All of the Audit Schemes associated with FSMA call for "Verification" of chemical concentrations used in a Food Plant Sanitation Programs.
