This course covers current best practices for developing, documenting and implementing operational and environmental controls (such as PRPs, Good Manufacturing Practices, cGMPs, etc.) to prevent contamination of food materials. Managers and owners need their personnel to be experts in these methods – your PRPs are the foundation of a comprehensive food safety system.
A HACCP Prerequisite Program is the foundation for a comprehensive food quality system and provides the building blocks for HACCP plan development. In order for your HACCP system to be successful, HACCP prerequisite programs must be developed and implemented. Prerequisite programs are written to control operational and environmental conditions within the facility to ensure the production of safe food.
At the end of the program, you will be able to:
-Identify and categorize hazards
-Identify appropriate controls for hazards
-Write standard operating procedures (SOPs)
-Identify steps to PRP implementation
-Conduct a gap analysis of your current practices to PRP requirements
