HACCP or Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points, is a preventive system for the control of health-threatening biological, chemical, and physical food hazards during food processing. This is a comprehensive, two-day or 16 hour workshop, designed for those individuals responsible for implementing and managing a HACCP system in a food manufacturing facility. Participants who complete the course and create model HACCP Plans will receive certificates of completion.

The first two 4-hours sessions of the workshop covers prerequisite food safety programs. Prerequisites ensure products are free from objectionable hazards and provide for a sanitary food processing environment. Interactive sessions show how to implement programs such as Good Manufacturing Practices, Sanitation, and Pest Control. The day concludes with an overview of HACCP Preliminary Tasks and Hazard Analysis.

The second two sessions focus on how to develop a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan and implement a HACCP System. Participants will learn the five preliminary tasks, the seven key HACCP principles, and how to build a HACCP plan with product description, flow charts, hazard analysis, and a critical control point matrix. In addition, the relationship of a HACCP Plan to a FSMA-compliant “Food Safety Plan” will be covered.
