  • Food Safety Culture Development 23 May 2019 - 07:21 AM   food safety fridays, webinars and 1 more...
    The concern with Food Safety Culture is growing in many organizations, even those with their Food Safety System already certified. Many efforts have been engaged for the development of Safety Culture, but there are theoretical gaps in these efforts, which reflect on the quality of programs developed and, consequently, on the results achieved.

    This webinar aims to present basic concepts about organizational culture and, more specifically, about Food Safety Culture, showing the theoretical model of DNV GL. In this model, we understand culture as aggregation of beliefs, practices and perceptions of an organization, which can be evaluated from seven attributes previously defined and understood in a continuum of existing levels of culture.

    The identification of each attributes and the stage of culture which this organization is established, it is essential to the definition of a program that seeks to develop the Food Safety Culture.

  • Preventive Maintenance – How is it related to Food Safety 30 April 2019 - 06:09 PM   food safety fridays, webinar and 1 more...
    Preventive Maintenance is a must to have Pre-Requisite Program if you want to be certified under a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standard. However, a Preventive Maintenance Program is much more than a requirement. Proper maintained equipment allows that the plant runs smoothly, which creates cost savings in the long run. It also prevents equipment from becoming a source for the introduction of hazards due to the lack of of performance (i.e. not achieving operational limits that prevent from falling below critical limits) or integrity (i.e. source of metal shavings). This seminar will focus on describing the properties of a Preventive Maintenance Program and how they relate to the maintenance of Food Safety.

  • How to make food safety learning fun and effective 09 March 2019 - 05:37 PM   food safety fridays, webinar
    How to make food safety training fun and effective? Let's start by replacing the term "training" with the term "learning". Employees aren't circus elephants nor marathon runners. They don't need to be trained. They need to be taught and educated. Their competence is a strategic asset, without which food companies along the value chain are jeopardizing consumers health and wellbeing. In this Webinar we will share valuable ideas on how to make the learning experience in food establishments enjoyable, memorable and effective for our employees.

  • How to Select a GFSI Certification Scheme that is Best for my Company 01 February 2019 - 04:58 PM   food safety fridays, webinar and 1 more...
    Selecting a certification standard is an important step for any organization. You are choosing the rules the organization will need to maintain compliance to. In some ways, the selection of a standard will shape the food safety culture of your organization and will direct future investments. In many cases, companies end up changing standards after discovering that their initial choice was not a good fit for their company, that customer expectations have changed, or that there is a change in their food safety culture. A thorough decision results in better preparedness, clarity about what is required, and an indication of the steps to follow. It is important to understand the main components of a GFSI standard as each is different. Each may have more or less details in the requirements depending on the standard.

  • Root Cause Analysis to Ensure Continual Improvement 29 December 2018 - 02:24 PM   food safety fridays, webinar and 1 more...
    In this webinar you will learn techniques that will help you get to the root cause of problems in order to identify preventative measures and drive continual improvement. Root Cause Analysis is a method of problem solving that tries to identify the root causes of faults or problems, and is a useful technique to adopt to investigate non conformances raised at audit or as a result of incidents. A root cause is a cause that once removed from the problem fault sequence, prevents the final undesirable event from recurring. RCA uses a number of techniques to get to the root cause of the problem and in this way preventative measures can be identified and implement to prevent the problem recurring, along with the benefit of contributing to continual improvement.
