I am working as a first time QA Manager for a small fresh sausage company (new company, < 3 years old). I am the only member of our QA Department (very small company) and I am definitely learning on the fly.
I have already written and implemented our Food Safety and Quality Management System for SQF level 2. We received our SQF certification last month (I was worried because this was my first time dealing with SQF or even a certification body!).
My number 1 issue I am having is getting a good food safety culture here at our plant. It seems like our Operations Manager does not think it is as important as it should be. I am currently reading Food Safety Culture by Frank Yiannas and I have his other book Food Safety = Behavior to read when I'm done the first.
Any advice for how to change the views on food safety around here? Or any advice in general for someone who has never done QA before?
