This course is designed for those who are required to develop and implement HACCP to ensure the safety of non-food products. It introduces the principles of HACCP and shows how they can be applied to ensure products are safe and also to maintain public safety.
The course is ideally suited to technical and managerial staff who are expected to develop and maintain a HACCP system. In addition, it provides an ideal opportunity for managers to gain a good understanding of HACCP as it applies in a non-food context.
HACCP systems need to be developed by people who have a sound knowledge of product safety and of the HACCP principles. They also need to be skilled at using the various HACCP development tools.
Our standard two-day programme is designed to help participants understand the HACCP principles and to develop the skills required to create effective HACCP plans. As far as practicable the programme is adapted to account for the needs of participants and to reflect the products for which they will be developing their HACCP plans.
The workshop looks at the public safety hazards and risks that are posed by different products and the processes that must be applied to remove and manage the risks at the various production stages including goods-in, storage, processing, packaging and despatch.
By the end of the workshop participants will understand HACCP and be able to apply their skills to create HACCP plans in a non-food context.
The workshop is practically based and can be delivered over one or two days. It will allow participants to develop their understanding and skills so they are able to:
On day one participants will be introduced to the principles of HACCP and the development tools that are used to create HACCP plans. Participants will be expected to complete group activities to create a HACCP plan for a product they are familiar with. At the end of day one the participants will be set an assignment where they will be required to go away to either review an existing HACCP plan or to create a new HACCP plan using their newly acquired knowledge and skills.
On day two participants will be expected to present their draft HACCP plan and explain its content. They will also be expected to critique the plans produced by their colleagues. Completing this assignment review facilitates a further development opportunity and allows time to reflect on the principles introduced on day one to ensure a thorough understanding has been gained.
Finally, on day two participants who require an externally accredited certificate, will need to complete an RI multiple choice test paper. Successful completion will lead to an RI Certificate in HACCP Development.
