What Our Customers say
Create HACCP-Approved Products and Boost Your Brand
Do you know why your processes and products need to be HACCP-approved? HACCP is a system that ensures that food service businesses have implemented documented systems and procedures in compliance with safety regulations. HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point, a tool that can help your team identify and address potential food safety issues. Quality Associates provides HACCP training to help your business comply with regulations and provide safe products for your customers.
What You Should Know About HACCP in Food Safety
If you operate or plan to operate a food business, then you may be aware of the importance of having an HACCP certificate. Every food business is morally and legally bound to protect the safety and rights of consumers. An HAACCP Food Safety Programme can make a huge difference in the safety and quality of your products and the success of your business. HACCP covers areas such as:
- Hazard analysis. Hazard analysis can identify potential hazards at each step of production, including physical and chemical hazards as well as allergen cross-contamination. This process helps you assess the likely occurrence of hazards as well as the expected severity of their adverse effects on both your regulatory compliance and the quality of your products.
- Determination of CCPs. CCPs, or critical control points, are points in your process at which you can expect quality or regulatory challenges and implement controls to prevent them. If you see significant hazards at certain points, then you’ll need to determine if it is a critical control point, a quality control point, or a regulatory control point and then address it accordingly.
- CCP monitoring. Once you’ve established your CCPs, then you’ll need a system to monitor their control. Monitoring procedures include observing or measuring these points to detect loss of control and provide this information quickly for corrective action. Documented monitoring for each CCP should include elements such as who is responsible for doing the monitoring, how frequently the monitoring should occur, the method of monitoring used, and record-keeping to ensure compliance and measured results.
Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Their HACCP Food Safety Programme
While an HACCP food safety course can transform your systems and processes and make your products safer and more consistent, you may still have questions regarding compliance, inspection, or other issues. You’ve no doubt seen the media reports of food-related product recalls and other such issues in the food industry. That’s why we offer ongoing support and are always available to answer your questions throughout your HACCP training in Melbourne and beyond. In general, you can avoid having problems of your own by avoiding some common mistakes, such as:
- Problems with your HACCP plans. It’s easy to rack up food safety violations when you don’t have a written HACCP plan and stick to it. The lack of a written plan in and of itself is a significant source of citations, as well as incomplete food safety hazard listings, improper identification of critical limits, incorrect identification of critical control points, failing to assess and update the HACCP plan regularly, and neglecting the implementation of procedures listed in the plan, such as monitoring and record-keeping.
- Failure to identify maintenance issues. Your building and equipment maintenance matters. Some of the top issues include the lack of proper cleaning and maintenance of equipment, failure to maintain fixtures in a satisfactory manner, inadequate plant construction that limits the proper cleaning of ceilings, walls, and floors, and improper drainage and plumbing, such as condensation hazards. Overlooking any of these issues can result in non-compliance issues or – worse – safety issues for your employees or customers.
- Developing effective corrective actions and specifications. Many companies encounter issues with the lack of corrective action planning and documentation. Having an ineffective corrective action plan is counterproductive on every level. Many businesses have been cited for documenting corrective actions inadequately. Specification management is another major source of issues. Some top mistakes include not establishing specifications for labelling, packaging, purity, and other elements. It’s also important to monitor constantly and keep thorough records, including test results, batch records, packaging and labelling processes, sanitation control records, and written procedures for quality control and operations.
