Food Safety (HACCP) Plan Writing Workshop

SCS Global Services has partnered with Food Safety Guides to offer a unique technology training that prepares food businesses to tackle HACCP-based food safety plan writing affordably and collaboratively. We offer guidance and expertise, and provide a framework to your food safety plan building experience.

Who should take this course? This training is recommended as a follow-up to a HACCP principles and application training.

Objective & Take Away  Be prepared to launch your small to mid-sized business with full scale HACCP plan development documentation, and real-time productivity tools.  This includes learning how to craft SOPs/SSOPs, policies, and food safety pre-requisite programs.

  • Learn how to use free Google apps to:
    • Draft and manage a HACCP plan
    • Document control - collaborate on folders and documents in real-time
    • Enable mobile record keeping
    • Trend and audit monitoring data
    • Become  sufficiently literate to effectively implement and maintain your food safety plan

Why HACCP is challenging for small and mid-sized businesses -  We realize that small and medium sized businesses do not always have: (1) system-oriented staff; (2) time; (3) tools; and (4) training to write the plan.  We estimate that at least 25% of the time spent writing a HACCP plan is wasted on formatting. And while some software can resolve this by providing users with fillable fields, most does not provide real-time collaboration tools, which means only one person can work on a section of the plan at a time. The absence of advanced project management features also means no agenda for dividing and completing the work. 

There are Solutions!   And the TOOLS are free! (or nearly so - Google Apps for Work has an upgrade of $50/user/year)
