Employee Practices that Contribute to Bacterial Contamination in a Food Plant

May 2, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Why Should You Attend:

Whether it originates from a farm or in a food plant, foodborne microbial contamination of our food supply is an unseen threat. Bacteria can enter a food processor, a packinghouse or storage and distribution centers by various avenues, but poor practices by employees can contribute to moving these bacteria from one location to another within the facility and eventually onto the product itself.

This webinar will help attendees understand how foodborne pathogens originate in a plant, enter into a food plant, and move through the facility. Attendees will learn about employee practices that contribute to foodborne contamination in their facility. Once they understand what these bad practices are then they can implement programs that change their behavior.

Areas covered in this webinar:

  • Introduction to employee practices.
  • Poor employee practices of handling product, packaging material and containers.
  • Poor employee hygiene.
  • Self-inspections for monitoring poor employee practices.
  • Training solutions for changing behavior.
  • Summarization of best employee practices.

Who Will Benefit:

This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all personnel in packinghouses, processors, cooler operations and storage and distribution centers.

  • Owners and Operators of Food Companies
  • Packinghouse Managers and Supervisors
  • QA Managers
  • Food Safety Managers, Supervisors and Coordinators
  • Brokers and Salespersons
