I got a directive from our CEO yesterday that he wants sanitation to "do more than empty garbage cans", he "wants them certified"

 

I have no idea what to certify them in, one of our top executives pulled me aside and said he wants us cleaned like a bakery but we are already cleaner than a bakery, visitors always compliment us on how clean our facility is.

 

does anyone know of any type of Janitorial/Sanitation training/certification? I found something in Amsterdam but it was food processing wet/dry cleaning training which is over kill for us, we are a flexible packaging converter...

 

or maybe I should just out source it......

Hi ctzinc,

 

I presume you are already SQF certified.

 

Does yr CEO not trust SQF to audit Sanitation Controls/Controllers ?

 

It sounds like a forthcoming  Financial ploy to me.

 

There may be some online GMP type programs (assuming yr CEO believes in the internet).

 

Or perhaps look for a certification program for Internal Auditors. This requires "everything".

 

My guess is that people like Silliker would love to hear from you.


Kind Regards,

AIB has some GMP/Sanitation training coming up in August, We will probably go to that....

I had to look into this for our sanitation group and I received 2 recommendations:

 

1.  Penn State Sanitation Course - The next one is October 4, 2016

​2.  Ecolab Food Safety Institute - several courses this year
