  • Integrating Management Systems for Food Businesses 14 August 2020 - 04:26 PM   food safety fridays, webinar, IMS and 7 more...
    ISO Annex L requires individual management systems to require a High Level Structure. In response, more often modern businesses are seeking to create a seamless compliance management framework that unifies disparate compliance Management Systems from Food Safety, Quality, and Environmental Management to Occupational Health & Safety, Sustainability, and Information Security Management.

    This session will explore practical approaches to creating a singular system of management that is leaner and more efficient than multiple separate systems, including the streamlining of duplicate processes and improving transparency with integrated audits and documentation to improve co-operation across the business group.

  • Food Safety and Employee Safety - a behavioral approach to create synergy by integrating two agendas 06 July 2020 - 12:45 PM   food safety fridays, webinar and 2 more...
    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.
