Jerry : Hello from Libertyville, Illinois.
Anne : Anne from MIddletown NY
Keith : Good point Kirsten!
Olamide : Hello from Hungary
Chillida : same problem with the audio
Edith : Edith from Uruguay
Kirsten : Keith its all about priorities - what do the managers put first? Production or safety? Managers can talk about safety in a meeting, but if they prioritize production, employees will follow that lead
nkwekam : I think the food safety culture can be improved with awareness trainings
Dennis : Hello, from Champaign , Illinois, USA
Jamie : I've found that no amount of awareness training will make a different if your floor management isn't demonstrating those values
Tina Brooks : Hey Dennis, my sister is in Champaign. :)
Terina : I grew up in champaign!
Jhon : the small lettes cannot be seen
Tina Brooks : I concur, Jamie. Any break in the chain of commitment is a break in the commitment.
Dennis : Small world Tina and Terina
Dennis : Our facility is just behind the mall by the FEDX building
Tina Brooks : teeny tiny.
nkwekam : After commitment from top management I strongly believe going downstream, the culture will be improved with systematic awareness trainings
suma : suma Ireland
What effect(s) do you expect FSMA
to have on food safety culture?
Stuart : If an organization is committed to a culture of food safety, that commitment should not end at the door! Organization must insist on and only work with like minded organizations, otherwise it is only window dressing
Gary : I agree with all that is being said, I find that everyone says that food safety is a priority, but then when production demands are high, food safety procedures take a backwards step in favour of getting production out. Operational procedures especially cleaning is quickened & this is a real problem
Bruce : How do you connect Corpoate promise with HARPC?
Laura : @Gary, Exactly right!
James : Kirsten.... triple the work load for all QA Managers
Brian : Gary, you nailed it. When push comes to shove, often times, management values the dollar over everything else.
Kimberly Allison : Do you think that companies will actually say NO to orders when food safety is an issue? What will make them say no to more money?
James : A high volume of MOLE oven temperature monitoring devices.
Tina Brooks : I've been noticing, as we implement new detail systems, that the tightening up of the notches make the food safety the key. The system forces the employee to maintain the levels required. I dunno how it works at the larger team levels, our company is 6 employees in close quarters.
JAMES : Brian, that is a true
nkwekam : @Gary : this means in this situation we do not do what we say ie we do not implement our culture
Dennis : QUALITY is not a ACT. It is a HABIT. -Aristotle-
Tina Brooks : Kimberly, our company says no to bad business... But then, $$$ isn't our corporate bottom line. I think THAT makes a difference. It's what I like about the enforcemnent of food safety requirements being implemented.
Michelle : Separate lines for allergens
Janet : frequent training
Jessy : continuous improvement by holding monthly meetings, attending food safety conferences and trainings
Robert : Quality policy and objectives
Shayla Cacchiotti : We are committed to provide easy to use instrumentation to ensure safety in the food industry
Kyota : training
Christian : We have a monthly topic of the month for food safety
Rajsekhar Chakradharan : Red or Green cards for a bad or good job
Kirsten : My COO and I try to speak with the same "voice"
Tina Brooks : Exactly, Michelle... or no allergens allowed. Then no possibility for cross contamination.
Rajsekhar Chakradharan : food safety champion of the month
Jessica Robinson : we don't allow peanut butter in employee lunches in case they go back to food storage area
Declan Blanchfield : explaining the why to associates why certain conditions are in place
Gary : we have over 200 employees & only a technical team of 3, so it is very difficult to ensure all employees & production managers are doing the right thing. Even the directors sometimes by pass food safety culture in order to get products out of the door.
Bruce : Cross-function mandate to establish and maintain the FS Plan including Monitoring and evolving the G PS Practices
Stuart : @Tina and @Kimberly - agree, so if management does not refuse to accept orders ($) and it falls to the line employee to be responsible, does that line employee have the authority to stop production in the interest of food safety?
nkwekam : training on food safety concepts and nouvel technologies
ramzy howait : training for f s culture
Joyce : Front line employees recognizing food safety danger signs
Chillida : New devices installed in production area for food safety requirements
Rajsekhar Chakradharan : newsletter
MikeZ : Training and Management buy-in
Kimberly Allison : Catch them doing something right!!
David : WE ahve Improved general Safety by restricting access to guests and visitors to our facility, and introduced inteligent scheduling in production
Terina : I think it is defintely habit based. The frequent meetings and departmental interaction by all is key
Tina Brooks : In our plant, it does, Stuart. If it's unsafe, they have the last call. It's their safety at that point.
Luis : I am a Chef Instructor, so by educating, training in Allergies I my future chefs are ready to be responsible in the food industry
Sheila : posting of quality KPI's
ramzy howait : GMPS requirements
Aurora : building maintenance
Michael Govender : let your teams take ownership of quality and food safety
Tina Brooks : David, we've done that as well. Although, we only allow "visitors" when not in production.
Christi : Employee GMP training Monthly
enrique : Food Safety and Quality continouos improvement and Swenior management and management in general living the example every day
lum : building capacity on food safety
Tina Brooks : Christi, yes, mandatory Salubrite courses for all.
Kimberly Allison : Stuart, I would hope so!! So much pressure... perhaps a program in place to work with high volume times would be appropriate for those who have $$ as a goal....
Iryna Dyachenko : quality and safety tool box talk for Direct Food handlers
Jhon : employees eat their manufactured final product
Chillida : training for me is not the most important tool is only a help
Tina Brooks : Enrique has it... When management fails to show the commitment, it gives the lower level employees permission to slack off. It has to be rock solid enforced.
Bruce : Train and adopt Hazard Analysis at strtigic functions which are embedded in job descriptions and monitored with KPIs
Brian : In my experience, tying incentives, especially money (bonuses, raises, etc.) to food safety and quality is one of the most effective ways to get worker commitment to consistent food safety/quality.
Chillida : the management image and culture is very important
Chillida : the idea of one integral team at all levels is important
nkwekam : I think food safety concept should never be seperated from food quality
Bruce : safe Design Qualification Practices
yoga : Greater than
Parker : depends on the manager
Declan Blanchfield : depends on production volumes
Bruce : It all works together
Rajsekhar Chakradharan : because worker will leave the company anytime
Ramon Vera : Greater
Kyota : Management has to come first
David : workers here dont care much.... just complain more work.
James : Rewarding good behavior
Hin Wai : agreed with david
Sumalee : Hi
nkwekam : its all about leadership
Brian : What would make the workers care more, David and Hin?
Sheila : the"same as" could be good or bad, depending on the collective commitment
Tina Brooks : We'd considered bonuses for faster, more efficient work, how does an employer compensate commitment to food safety to encourage it?
jackie : It comes from the top, then filters down
JAMES : Agree it start with the leadership
David : alllmotivated by cash, but that doesnt always work out
Lisa : I agree with Sheila- both levels are low
Stuart : do the workers have clear understanding of the job? Realistic job discriptions?
Kimberly Allison : spending more money on an expectation seems not quite right.... perhaps something that is associated with recognition, not pay raise or bonus for doing expectation.
greta : Tina - a suggestion was made to consider here to require a minimun time for line cleans to irritorate importance for cleaning for food safety between jobs, but the floor managers are too concerned about thosetimes
Bruce : Middle management manages food safety up and down the corporate structure
Kirsten : @Kimberly - YES setting expectations and holding people accountable
Brian : Tina, when I worked for Cargill Animal Nutrition, we had an annual bonus that was dependent on a couple of key performance indicators we called "World Class" - bottom line, it was about how the plant performed as a whole in terms of worker safety, production, etc. - very clear expectations.
Brian : IT was VERY effective!!
Stuart : If any $ incentive, it should not be for individuals but for all - must promote colaboration - all succeed or all fail
David : Training goes so far then most times workers lapse back into old habits, however there are those that are committed, but they are leveled as brown noses. doesnt help much.... just saying
Bruce : Principles: Safety, legal, Perform as advertised, perceived by consumers as quality...
Tina Brooks : So, as I understand it, the time structure is where the bottleneck that tosses safety aside occurs... have I got that idea right?
Rose : Hello from KL, Malaysia
Declan Blanchfield : well put Tina, I think so
JAMES : less than
Bob : Tina - Yes. All too often the pressure to return the facility to operations is tremendously high
Tina Brooks : Declan, I think having a teeny worksite makes it easier to ensure that we don't put that stricture into play. Not so easy for a large company. Ramping that up will be tricky.
nkwekam : most at time top management is the first to bridge the culture
Bruce : Clear expectations communicated in language that is responded too with conmmitment so that if you child or yourself would accept the safety of the food
Declan Blanchfield : yea sure Tina, bigger becomes more complex, but bad habits can happen in any size company
Declan Blanchfield : I think from todays chats I will include a consideration of increased volumes into training/ discussion, and breakdown the behaviors
Raylene : When senior management communicate the goals of the food safety and their expectation from the employees then the culture change happens more quickly
Ryan : Top Management IS the culture...that's why every GFSI scheme requires management commitment.
Bob : Agreed, and management has to walk the talk.
Declan Blanchfield : sub cultures can form quickly within orgs - snr mgt needs to monitor that
Kimberly Allison : i haveseen many companies talk the talk and not have it actually happen in the details.this is a good presentation for all of HR behavioral training.
Stuart : Ryan, does that work if Top management is not seen but only middle manangement to supervisors are those that are seen/heard?
Joyce : In my experience, larger companies have more concrete programs and verified training, so I have seen better employee compliance in a large company.
Stuart : Kimberly - agree, this is good for all HR, I am taking notes for other workplace safety issues beyond food safety. Some very good points about behavior change
Ryan : Yes Stuart because top management filters down to middle management in some fashion. Whether by hiring choices, interactions, and priorities.
Luis : People love to stay in their comfort zones
Kimberly Allison : Yes! Also, on the spot corrections are key to all this, I have seen. Dont let a bad thing go on.. people with think it is acceptable.
benhanifia mokhtar : HELLO
Simon Timperley : Good point Luis
Jacinthe : I agree with you Allison.
Kimberly Allison : reminds me of the story about the leaking roof, the tarp in the production area, the overheating unit on the roof, and the sprinkler set up to cool it off! Bad bad culture for food and safety in that place!
Simon Timperley : and agreed 100% Kimberly
Camille : Really enjoyed the section on non-compliance. I'm a firm believer in root cause analysis and not just "retraining" as the default.
diane : Post a sign 'you family will eat this'
David : DIANE THANK YOU PRINTING IT NOW
Tina Brooks : Implementation of a six sygma solution has been useful.
Tina Brooks : Great idea, Diane!
Christi : So maybe the person in charge of food safety should not have a direct stake in whether production goals are made.
Declan Blanchfield : Root Cause Analysis done properly does what it says on the tin.
Kimberly Allison : Camille, yes retraining is not a corrective action.
Tina Brooks : I agree, Christi
Ryan : Christi...ideally, yes. Also, production personnel/management should have quality and food safety goals.
Megan : Commitment banner: "I take food safe actions because I care about everyone that puts their trust in 'Your Company Name' products."
Stuart : Kimberly, you hit the nail on the head again. I would like all of my HR people to say it three times "retraining is not a corrective action."
