This presentation provides an overview of understanding the “three-legged stool” as related to defining, implementing, and maintaining an effective food safety management program. It is applicable for either implementing or maintaining a system compliant with a GFSI-approved food safety program and/or a HACCP program.
This material is invaluable for those who are interested in enhancing their understanding through practical applications and best practices. Debby Newslow provides insight, not only based on years of first-hand experience, but also from her recently released CRC Press publication Food Safety Management Programs: Applications, Best Practices, and Compliance.
This presentation will include an emphasis on the “three-legged stool:” Effective management review, corrective and preventive action, and internal audit programs. These programs form the foundation of a value-added management system. Ensuring the effectiveness of these three processes is critical to the ultimate success and sustainability of the internal management system/program. Focus may also include (depending on the allotted time) the following:
