Behavioral Based Food Safety 06 July 2020 - 01:08 PM
Studies show that 25-40% of food employees don’t wash their hands properly after visiting the toilet. In this webinar we will obtain tools to better understand what barriers stand between planning and implementation. These tools will enable food safety professionals to put together a more effective comprehensive food safety implementation program at the workplace. We will present the novel MACK (motivation, awareness, capability and knowledge) model of human behavior. Using case studies we will utilize the model to shed light on what is really going wrong in the industry and gain insight and how to effectively modify behavior.

How ISO 9001:2015 can improve your food safety management 06 July 2020 - 01:01 PM
Many establishments operating throughout the food supply chain are certified to ISO 9001 and the majority of these are co-certified to any one of the Food Safety Management System (FSMS) schemes available. In September 2015 ISO published the latest revision of ISO 9001, Requirements for Quality Management Systems. Transition to this new version will gradually take place until September 2018. The new version of 9001 represents a fresh approach to managing quality and can be integrated with the organization’s FSMS more effectively. In this lecture we will learn the major changes in the Standard and ways to take advantage of them for the benefit of improving the FSMS.

Food Safety and Employee Safety - a behavioral approach to create synergy by integrating two agendas 06 July 2020 - 12:45 PM
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.

Allergen Management, Supporting Your Business 04 July 2020 - 01:44 PM
This webinar will discuss how effective risk assessment can prevent unintentional addition of allergenic material to non-allergen containing product. Effective allergen management involves identifying the potential for unintentional addition of allergenic material to non-allergen containing product and through risk assessment, determining the levels of control necessary to ensure product contamination does not occur. New detection methods and levels are becoming available for the identification of allergens, which can be used to confirm product does not contain unintentionally added allergens.

Basic Food Safety Economics 04 July 2020 - 01:42 PM
Assigning economic value to food safety projects can be challenging because there are little tangible returns on the investment. Most of the costs have not occurred before implementing a food safety project and the objective of implementing them is that these costs should never occur. From another perspective the value of food safety projects can be evaluated by the customers/markets gained because of their implementation, and this can be a motivator for business managers. The objective of this webinar is to review the various approaches that can be used to justify the economic value of food safety projects.

Safe Food vs. Healthy Food 04 July 2020 - 01:38 PM
This webinar will discuss how successful food producers of the future will need to provide both healthy and safe products. When we talk about food safety, we always speak about safe product that will not cause a bad reaction of the organism after its consumption. This further means that the product is safe, but does not necessarily mean that the product is a healthy. An increasing number of people realize the importance of healthy eating and turned to the same. This trend will not leave food producers, which in the future will have to provide, in addition to safe also a healthy products for the market.
