Greetings to all,

 

We have planned to conduct a Food Safety Day in our organization. It would be a 1 day programme filled with few activities / games to promote the awareness on Food Safety. 

 

Could anyone provide some ideas on the activities / games that we can conduct on that day?

 

Appreciate your ideas. Thank you and have a good day!

Lechumi,

 

I am really interested in how this goes.  Have you done it before?  I like the idea and I wonder if it is received well.

 

Cheers!

Well doesn't have to do with food safety, but once at our Christmas party (we're a dry mix manufacturer, so everyone scoops something or other during a work day) I busted out two scales and two scoops, and we gambled on scoop weights.   2 players at a time lay down their cash, each gets one scoop on the scale.   Closest to a pound wins.   It looked like Dave Chapelle's world championships of dice in there.....

This is an interesting idea, but I don't know if it would fly with my guys.  They get food safety training of course, but making things fun for these guys tends to make it automatically not serious.

Make a ''pin the donkey'' with a food related picture (e.g. pin the bacteria to the fallen sandwich)

Do a hand washing contest. 

We had a UV light up cream. After HACCP training we would pick a few people who would ''moisturize'' with the UV cream. And than wash your hands. Check with a UV light for residue.
Best handwasher wins a price.

 

Have a food bar in which food is served in (fake) non-hygienic ways.
E.g. small toilet bowls, of the floor, with people wearing fake-dirty smocks, brownie ''sausages'' in a tray of puffed grain cereal (cat litter box)
They will wouldn't want to eat from unclear places themselves, so don't work unclean in your job.

 

I also remember a myth buster episode in which they had a group dinner with one of them having a fake runny nose. The fake runny nose was some UV-light up liquid. And at the end of the dinner they would light up the room to see where it all got (spoiler: it got everywhere).

And of course a mirror with the phrase 
''Look here to see who is responsible for food safety''  :sorcerer:

I may actually do this one, lol.   Good idea.   My inspectors will like it too I'm sure!

In my past we did Food Safety BIGO based on our GMP, Allergen and HACCP Plan. It was a great refresher training
