Exceeding SQF Expectations: Addressing the Human Element of Food Safety
Learn how frontline worker behavior impacts the future of food safety and SQF 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 the upcoming SQF Edition 8, now includes and emphasizes the human element – people and their behavior.
- A top deficiency found during SQF audits is the lack of frontline employees putting their food safety training into practice
- The upcoming SQF Edition 8 will focus on management’s commitment to create positive behavior change through hands-on demonstrations and coaching
- Education and reinforcement are key – keep your employees informed 24/7 with Alchemy’s learning, communication, and performance programs
