    FD215 MANAGING RETAIL FOOD SAFETY

    June 2nd & 3rd 2009

    Augusta, Georgia

    Applying HACCP Principles to the Inspection of Retail and Food Service Establishments

    Course Description: This course is designed to allow participants an opportunity to explore the various ways that risk-based inspections can be applied in retail and food service establishments. Topics will include the “process approach” to HACCP, applications of HACCP principles in routine inspection work, and assessing active managerial control of risk factors by operators through a HACCP system or other established food safety systems. While the process approach is new to many regulators, it is better designed for use in retail and food service settings than traditional HACCP approaches because it eliminates lengthy flow charting and hazard analysis for every type of food product.

    Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

    * Identify possible hazards associated with retail and food service operations and the control measures available to prevent, reduce, or eliminate the risks of these hazards.
    * Apply the “process approach” of HACCP to routine inspections of retail and food service operations.
    * Identify appropriate techniques and methods for applying HACCP principles to inspections and offering intervention strategies for controlling risks to operators (those with and without HACCP Plans.)

    Target Audience: Federal, state and local regulators conducting inspections of retail food establishments and operators of retail and food service operations.

    Congratulations on getting your blog up, I hope you see lots of use on it in the future. Sorry to hear of your cancelled conference….I hope that is not a sign of the future….at least you all had NEHA in Atlanta this year.

    Enjoying my trip to Britain. Working on establishing a good blogsite to share my experiences. Had difficulty accessing internet, but will likely be able to put something together to at least give a start.

    Talk to you all soon,
    Julia
