A Breakdown of the 4-Day Lead Implementer Training
ADVANCED RISK OPTIMIZATION
Risk optimized food safety systems allow rapid implementation, focus on recall avoidance, brand protection and more efficient use of your most valuable resources – time and money.
Why choose a new approach?
- Existing food safety training is clause/checklist based – not focused on techniques and tool kits.
- Gap assessments of GFSI and PCQI scheme training has identified very poor trainee feedback.
- Lack of true understanding of risks and controls leads to misdirected money and personnel.
How do we know the approach works?
- The risk optimization approach has been proven effective in several regions globally.
- New graduates, as well as experienced food safety industry personnel, can attest to benefits.
- Small/medium companies appreciate rapid implementation through toolkits and adult learning.
- Training aligned with ISO 22000:2018, US Food Safety Modernization Act, (FSMA), and the Safe Food for Canadians Act, (SFCA).
- Effective, adult learning format training with tool kits to implement all key elements.
- Advanced, intensive, exclusive RORC Risk Optimization Calculator tool kit to consistently calculate risk and establish control tiers.
- Rigorous supplier approval and supply chain monitoring tool kits and scorecard system.
- Intensive, unique format for risk assessment studies.
- Techniques to develop risk based specifications – internal and supply chain.
- Techniques for using control tiers to streamline procedures and risk control plans.
- Tool kits for control tier based, advanced corrective action, root cause analysis and closure evidence evaluation.
- Advanced tool kits for effective, risk/control tier based, virtual or on-site internal/supplier audit planning, performance and non-conformance closure.
