This training is required for all personnel engaged in transportation operations upon hiring and as needed thereafter. However, thousands of U.S. carriers have not yet provided training for loaders, unloaders, drivers and all personnel involved in food transportation.
This Food Safety Virtual Boot Camp with food safety expert Dr. John Ryan will provide you an outline of what you must do to be in compliance with the law. While training sets the stage, you must have a documented system in place to prove you are adequately protecting transported food from sanitation and temperature problems.
In addition to training, the rules require substantial improvement to procedures and processes involving sanitation and temperature controls designed to prevent adulteration of human and animal foods during transportation processes. Substantial written agreements between shippers and carriers must also be established and new documentation systems must be in place to provide evidence of rule compliance. The shortage of support infrastructure involving container and trailer sanitation and the lack of specification by shippers and carriers regarding adequate sanitation procedures is causing many companies to ignore rule compliance. This boot camp will cover these topics.
The full compliance date of April 2018 means there is little time left for perishable food carrier operations to develop and implement risk reducing preventive food handling, load and unload processes, and to make distribution and transportation process improvements. This boot camp will provide you with vital information and knowledge that will help you comply with the FSMA sanitary food transportation law, fulfill carrier training requirements and upgrade your food transportation system. Get the knowledge to build a basic plan and learn the difference between preventive and corrective actions.
