November 6-12 was Australian Food Safety Week, which this year took as its theme, Raw & Risky Foods. Every year, an estimated 4.1 million people get food poisoning in Australia; 1 million Australians have to visit a doctor with food poisoning; 32,000 people end up in hospital, and 86 people die.
Reducing the Statistics
Food Safety Management Systems and Auditing help reduce these statistics, playing a major role in the health of the nation.
FSSC 22000 Lead Auditor Training provides auditors with knowledge and skills needed to competently conduct third party assessments of Food Safety Management Systems and HACCP. It’s about helping put processes in place that reduce the risks of contamination, and ensure constant scrutiny and improvement.
It’s a job with a great deal of responsibility, and rightly so. By picking up on a risk or error, an FSSC 22000 Lead Auditor might actually be saving lives!
Upgrade Your Qualifications
Generally run over five days, FSSC 22000 Lead Auditor Training is a good fit for HACCP auditors wishing to increase their qualifications to include ISO 22000 and/or FSSC 22000; food technologists; quality supervisors and managers; ISO 22000 auditors wishing to upgrade to FSSC, and anybody wishing to conduct internal audits, supplier audits or external audits of an FSMS.
Comprehensive courses are currently available at SC Training Centre in Brisbane, covering everything from Food Safety Standards and the Food Standards Code, to the audit process itself, communication skills, food safety hazards, HACCP, and recent developments in food safety.
Food safety looks set to become a growing issue, with various governments putting in place food safety strategies to reduce the risks. Now is an excellent time to train as a Food Safety Management System Lead Auditor.
