Hi All,
Does anyone have a good Foreign Object Training program? I would like to cover everything necessary but not too long and more visual.
The staff here are not too competent with reading, so the simpler the better.
Thanks,
Paula

Dear Paula,

You may need to be a little more specific to get useful input.
"Foreign Object" covers, well, foreign objects.
For example, it could include sieving, metal detection and entomological examination to name but 3. :smile:

Hi Charles,
This is for production staff in a bakery so I mean foreign matter such as plastic/glass, metal, wood, string, pests, stones. The obvious - don't want to get too complicated with sieves, maintenance, etc.
Thanks,
Paula

I don't have a specific foreign body training course, but examples and pictures always speak volumes.

Perhaps you could go round your bakery with a camera and take photos of anything which may end up as a foreign body.

If you have a test bakery, you could always artificially create foreign bodies in some bread - sack paper, sackstring, engineering debris, band aids, old dough, stones, pests etc.

Here are a couple of sample photos to start you off.

I did just that foodworker. I took photographs of end products with all sorts of contaminants inside such as glass, hairs, blades, dirt, a fly, jewellery, oil, staple etc. I even threw in mixed packaging and some defects critical to consumer safety such as missing print on ingredients and ink on food contact side. What I did then was put each photograph on a powerpoint slide along with:

1. What the contaminant is
2. What problems it would cause the customer / end user
3. What procedures and controls we have in place to prevent them

Made a great refresher course and used for induction and placed on a notice board in factory.

Regards,
Simon

By the way Paula, do you use metal detection or x-ray inspection in your factory?

Simon
