REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Tuesday, October 29th at 12:00 PM
Foodborne pathogens may hide in the corners and crevices of your equipment and production facility, avoiding eradication by routine sanitation procedures. These pathogens in turn cause widespread recalls and outbreaks that take lives and destroy brand reputations. FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires food processing facilities to mitigate this risk, by conducting a hazard analysis and implementing risk-based preventive controls. Environmental control and monitoring are integral parts of this required risk management.
Covers All Stages of EMP
While some companies are in the early stage of setting up an appropriate Environmental Monitoring Program (EMP), others struggle with how to respond to pathogen-positive results from their existing programs. This interactive workshop will guide you through:
✓ Understanding the fundamentals and requirements for implementing an EMP
✓ Developing sampling plans and procedures
✓ Hands-on training for taking air, water, and surface samples
✓ Approaches to managing the data generated
✓ Taking corrective actions as part of the environmental control and risk management strategy
Please feel free to signup for our Foodborne Pathogen & Product Sampling class, which may serve as a foundation for this workshop.
