Kind regards,

When I set up the documentation for training verification, I just make a spreadsheet of the tasks that are important for that particular job classification, then have cells to record who did the training, when, and to verify that the person being recorded is competent.  That spreadsheet is for tracking the training of that individual.  To have a comprehensive record, I have a spreadsheet with the names of all employees (different job classifications on different tabs) and all the tasks that they need to attain competency on as headings, and put the date that they achieved the competency into the appropriate cell.

I agree with MWildra. It doesn't have to be anything too extensive.

 

Training for FSMS ususally include your PRP's, things like:

Allergen

Sanitation

Personnel Practices / GMP

Pest Control

Shipping / Recieving (if applicable)

Record Management

HACCP

Food Security/Defense

 

 

Most big Food Safety company's have short videos that can be shown (for example you might want to look at 

http://www.zoro.com/...CFVIkgQodBRoAlA

or

http://www.merieuxnu...ng-programs/426

 

After they've watched the video - you can give them a short 10-20 question quiz to assess the competency/ understanding of the employees. Record Date of training, along with employees present and their scores, and you're good!

(Most Food Safety trainings should be held annually to keep everyone fresh!)

A hearty agreement on that thought.

 

And...for your occupational safety program as well.  Annual refreshers are required for some topics, but it's best to go over everything.  If people don't use a skill or information for a long time,  it gets forgotten.
