Hazards Analysis Critical Control Points
HACCP, as a preventative food safety management system, standardizes processes in line with current UK and EU legislation and it is an asset for supervisors, management and record keepers.
If your food related business does not employ this vital tool, you are leaving yourself and your business open to serious lapses in processes which could lead to a food hygiene or health and safety incident.
Every food related business is different and therefore creating your own HACCP plan is a high priority task. Your HACCP plan, when acted on efficiently, will aid risk assessment, initiating controls and maintaining the necessary records. It also delivers peace of mind, maximises efficiency and cost effectiveness within operations.
It is every member of your team’s responsibility to work safely and to not place their colleagues or consumers at risk of cross contamination, food poisoning and to label food’s ingredients correctly to prevent allergy sufferers from a health incident.
HACCP courses for staff and supervisors explain how HACCP and HACCP plans work, why they are deemed vital and what HACCP means in every day task accomplishment. Staff are urged to identify and assess risks to optimise safety.
A small investment with huge benefits
When employees and management are trained, taking HACCP courses with a specialist firm like Food Alert, an HACCP plan can become a combined effort, working towards food hygiene, safety and evaluating risks before they can impact on business.
You may feel that training is an unwanted financial and time burden, that HACCP plans simply increase workload and that your operation doesn’t need to engage with “red tape.”
Just one lapse in practices and lack of controls can lead to loss of reputation, legal action, fines, illness and sometimes death.
The ramifications of not using HACCP based food safety management systems are far less attractive than investing in HACCP courses. Effective tools and HACCP plan training are valuable to you and your staff, you’re offering them knowledge and helping them to reach their potential, for your good.
