The retrain date can be based either on date of completion or on a specific date you set as the administrator. More options for how you manage and track recurring requirements helps you stay compliant with regulations and meet the unique needs of your workplace.
New Course: Preventing Food Hazards Using HACCP and FDA FSPs
This course introduces key concepts about food safety, including types of food safety hazards and the principles of two food safety systems. It helps manufacturers prevent hazards from entering food, thus reducing liability, improving safety, and staying compliant with multiple regulations.
Not only are the HACCP principles presented in a condensed, easy-to-understand format, this course includes FDA Food Safety Plans (FSPs) components as well. The content is therefore applicable to employees who work in food manufacturing facilities that are either USDA- or FDA-inspected.
