How to Set Up a Sampling Zone for an Environmental Monitoring Program

in Food Safety Fridays Webinars
Added by Simon, 15 Jan 2018

Taking place 29 Jun 2018 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM (Single Day Event)


Webinar Description

An environmental monitoring program (EMP) can be used to assess the effectiveness of the overall hygienic practices in a facility and to provide information needed to prevent possible microbial contamination of food products. An EMP provides valuable data (source and concentration) on indicator organisms, spoilage organisms, and pathogens of concern in a timely manner. An EMP is not designed to validate the effectiveness of cleaning and sanitizing methods; the focus is more on validating cleaning and sanitizing frequencies and other Good Manufacturing Practices (21 CFR 110). Gain insight into how effective EMP sampling zones can be implemented in a food-handling facility to reduce the risk of microbial contamination of finished products.

Cost of Attendance: $Free
