Exceeding BRC Expectations: Addressing the Human Element of Food Safety


Learn how frontline worker behavior impacts the future of food safety and BRC compliance

The 2016 Global Food Safety Training Survey revealed an astounding 62% of food companies say that not all of their employees are following the right food safety protocols on the floor. However, 75% of those food companies agreed that employees would be more productive if their food safety program was consistently applied.

Have you ever wondered if your training methods are driving the right food safety behaviors and results? Once upon a time, the food industry’s approach to food safety focused on inspection results, facility design, microbiology, and illness outbreaks. The future of food safety, as outlined by BRC 7, now includes and emphasizes the human element – people and their behavior.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some of the most common BRC audit non-conformities are due to deficiencies in contractor and temporary employee training
  • Consistent employee training is key to building a strong food safety culture
  • Learn more about BRC’s new module to help improve audit results here
  • Employees are your best line of defense – Alchemy can help you establish learning, communication, and performance programs so you’re prepared for any audit
