  • Designed to provide an introduction to food safety and the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system, this program is intended for newcomers to the food industry or professionals working within the food industry requiring a basic understanding of HACCP as a food safety management tool. Through presentations, exercises and case studies, this interactive training program provides an understanding of the Codex Alimentarius seven principles of HACCP, food safety related hazards, the importance of prerequisite programs and your role in maintaining food safety. At the end of the program, you will be able to:

    • Discuss the importance of food safety and HACCP
    • Identify food safety hazards
    • Describe the principles of HACCP
    • Outline the steps involved in HACCP plan development
    • Understand the regulations governing food safety in Canada, U.S. and under the GFSI standards.

    This training will benefit suppliers, contractors (i.e. sanitation chemical suppliers), allied trades professionals and personnel within a food facility who would like to gain greater understanding of food safety and HACCP (i.e. sales, marketing, HR professionals).
