Environmental Monitoring, Root Cause Analysis and Food Defense

SCS trainer, Rhiannon Woo, covers three important food safety concepts: environmental monitoring, root cause analysis and food defense. First, learn specific techniques for effective environmental monitoring, including understanding potential sources of contamination, identifying areas at high-risk for contamination and using appropriate testing methods.  Next, explore the concept of root cause analysis, by learning about each of its four steps: data collection, causal factor charting, root cause identification and corrective action implementation. Lastly, understand the regulatory requirements for food defense and ways to integrate food safety and food defense practices.
