Hi guys, I have a question about a recent audit we had and I am hoping you can help me with it. We have our own annual HACCP /Food Safety training I conduct every year, usaully around Aug-September. I don't have a Training SOP per say, however. I do keep an Employee Training binder containing our training matrix, with all the course information, date trained, position, who has to have what training, employee name,etc. Sign in sheets, Training Agenda, and all the information that was thought in the class, which is about an 8 hour class, consisting of multiple presentations, movies, puzzles, quizzes and tests the employees have taken. The auditor asked me where my Training SOP was and I didn't have eany becasue over the last 7 audits we have never had to have one before. We did have a newer audit this year, than the last 7 because of the FSMA rules, but I didn't notice it stating we had to have a written Training SOP.
"Programs are in place to ensure that all food related employees (including part-time, newly hired and temporary employees) are receiving food safety training.
The training needs to be documented and should include........"
Am I reading this wrong, or is this saying that I need to have a Training SOP and that what information I have is not good enough for the auditor. She scored us a 10 out of 15 points.
If I need a Training SOP? Does anyone have a template I could use? I would really appreciate it!
Thank you for your help!
