Program Description

When people choose to do something because they believe it is the right thing to do – even if it takes longer or interferes with their other duties – you know you are building a strong food safety culture. Culture starts at the top, with senior management setting the tone and determining food safety objectives and goals. Senior management’s leadership in setting expectations, and an accountability mindset and approach to food safety, is vital to achieving and sustaining a robust food safety culture. Food safety culture is recognized as a key factor to achieving ongoing food safety success and to a better organizational culture overall.

What You’ll Do:

  • Discuss approaches for gaining management commitment

  • Use a food safety culture assessment to:

  • Evaluate your current food safety culture

  • Develop a food safety culture checklist

  • Prioritize areas for improvement

  • Identify potential key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure food safety culture

  • Begin developing an action plan for your facility
