More than 70% of production facilities use compressed air in the manufacturing process. Experts like the Compressed Air & Gas Institute (CAGI) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) agree that the primary contaminants to monitor are particles, water, and oil (PWO). The primary sources of contamination in a compressed air supply include the intake air quality and the compressor itself. Other significant sources include distribution piping, storage receivers, and point-of-use items such as valves, gauges, flexible tubing, and fittings. Does your system filter these contaminants out? Where does your compressed air system add additional contaminants that need to be monitored or filtered? Are these contaminants detrimental to your product? Where are your critical control points (HACCP/HACPT), and are you monitoring them?

This basis for risk assessment is "Identify – Evaluate – Control" – this is true for any kind of risk, including food safety risks and risks associated with employee safety and health. In both cases catastrophe can occur due to technical failure or human error. A behavioral based risk management approach stipulates the human behavior is involved in all failure, even if it is classified as "technical". A behavioral based management system should not be separately implemented for food safety and employee safety. This redundancy prevents pooling of resources and lowers effectiveness. In this webinar we will focus on those areas that can and should be integrated and learn how to effectively implement an Integrated Management System.

Mid to small size companies are now on the clock to get their systems in order for the FDA's FSMA implementation. Developing a solid preventive controls program is the only way to meet the FDA's requirements.

New food safety regulations and changes to international Food Safety Management schemes are placing more of the responsibility for supplier control directly on the customer. The supply chain program must provide assurance that hazards requiring a control (in the supply chain) are significantly reduced or eliminated. Does your supplier control/assurance program meet these new requirements? How can you align your current supplier program with the new preventive controls? This session will help you to identify steps you can take to bring your supply-chain control program into compliance. The session will identify some tips and tools for identifying any gaps or opportunities within your current Food Safety Management System to ensure that you are in conformance with both the regulations and your GFSI program requirements.

An essential presentation for any food safety manager who is responsible for risk assessment and determination of control measures within a food safety plan. The presentation will demystify much of the language and complex logic normally associated with risk assessment models and decision trees, which prevent many food companies from obtaining their objective of producing robust and appropriate control measures.

Although we enjoy one of the safest food supplies in the world, foodborne illness remains common in the United States where foodborne illness outbreaks affect millions and kill thousands of people. These outbreaks also undermine consumer confidence in affected products, result in large recalls, and diminish market demand. A substantial number of foodborne illness outbreaks result from poor hygiene practices. Microorganisms can survive in food processing and handling environments. They are generally introduced into the food environment through raw materials, pests, air, water, and employees. During this webinar find out ways that we can identify these hazards and stop them in their tracks.
