Connecticut Food Safety HACCP for Retail Food Establishments
Accredited by the International HACCP Alliance, this course presents the characteristics and application of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), a risk prevention management methodology that applies appropriate science and technology to plan, control, and document safe food processes in a food facility, consistent with the FDA’s desire to implement a voluntary HACCP program.
A Certified Food Safety HACCP Manager should be able to perform the following functions: Conducting preliminary activities, conducing hazard analyses, establishing detailed control measures, conducting verification activities, conducting operational implementation activities, and conducting continuous improvement activities.
The course first examines HACCP’s principles and concepts. The HACCP approach begins by identifying biological, chemical, and physical hazards (inputs to the system) associated with facility construction, equipment, employees, food and supplies.
The course also examines the prerequisite processes (e.g., personnel hygiene and training; equipment and facility cleaning, sanitizing, and maintenance; receiving and storage); and for food processes (e.g., cooking, hot and cold holding, and cooling), this course presents scientifically validated hazard control procedures that prevent, eliminate, or reduce hazards to levels that protect public health.
Finally, this course describes how HACCP is applied through Active Managerial Control (AMC) to establish a functional food safety management system.
Credit Hours: 16 hrs
After completing this course, the student will be able to:
- Identify the biological, chemical, and physical hazards in the food offered to consumers in a food system.
