Foreign Body Prevention and Control for Food Suppliers

 

Workshop Overview

 

The maintenance of robust systems for the prevention and management of foreign body risks is imperative to ensure food safety, protect brand integrity and reduce customer complaints. Appropriate risk assessments, preventative measures and controls should to be implemented for potential foreign body contamination risks such as glass and glass like materials, metal, fabrication and plastic, as well as a suitable complaint investigation and trend monitoring system.

 

This 1-day workshop is designed to provide your team with an awareness of industry best practice in identifying, preventing and controlling many foreign body risks as well as effectively investigating incidents to prevent re-occurrence.  

 

Unlike most classroom based foreign body management courses, the focus of this workshop is on demonstrating effective methods to challenge factory controls and standards though practical application.

 

The day is delivered via a mixture of workshop based discussions, power point presentations and most importantly, practical exercises on your factory floor, where delegates are expected to apply and discuss their new skills by reviewing site systems and their effectiveness on the factory floor. This culminates in the generation of their own departmental action plan designed to improve foreign body controls within the business.
