No idea for a chicken plant, but here are a few ideas to get you started, I posted this list when a member previously asked about the Food Safety Team Leader responsibilities.  May be adapted for HACCP Coordinator.

 

Feel free to jump in members.

 


  • Manage the food safety team
  • Organise FST duties and responsibilites to ensure that the FSMS is established, effective and objectives are achieved
  • Ensure adequate allocation of resources to support the establishment, implementation, maintenance, improvement and updating of the FSMS
  • Ensure the requirements of stakeholders are met
  • Monitor and validate the effectiveness of the FSMS to comply with applicable regulatory and legal requirements
  • Assess system / process capability and suitability
  • Plan and provide relevant training and education to the food safety team members on a regular basis
  • Ensure that the food safety team does have multidisciplinary knowledge and experience in the development and implementation of the FSMS in relation to the safety of product and processes
  • Assign the team with authorities to approve HACCP plan(s) and prerequisite (PRPs) programs
  • Quantify performance efficiency and performance gaps (including food safety)
  • Liaise with external parties relating to the FSMS issues
  • Provide reports and relevant information to the organization’s top management on the effectiveness and suitability of the food safety management system

Dear MBrown,

 

Thks for the impressive input. Seems very slightly biased to SQF. :smile:

 

I have a feeling some sort of comment about wishing to work with Chickens  is necessary somewhere. Problem-solving maybe?

Kind Regards,
