Welcome to Week 1 of the HACCP Mentor Food Safety HACCP Challenge! Before we start I would like to say a big thank you to all of you that have shown interest in participating in this food safety education and compliance initiative. The response has been nothing short of fantastic.
If this is the first time you have visited www.haccpmentor.com here is a quick run-down of the Challenge. The Food Safety HACCP Challenge is FREE and involves implementing one HACCP food safety strategy every week for the next 50 weeks regardless of any of your planned verification activities. The FSH Challenge aims to keep you motivated, focussed and gives you the opportunity to spread the word about HACCP and food safety. It is also a great way to evidence business and management commitment. Click here for more information.
To kick thing off out first Food Safety HACCP Challenge is to check that all pest bait maps line up with documented map.
How to do this Food Safety HACCP Challenge
Step 1: Print off or grab a copy of your documented pest control map
Step 2: Walk around your production facility to see if what is happening on the ground is reflected in your documented map. Don’t forget to check both inside and outside of your food production facility including boundary fence lines. Also check all the different types of pest control devices.
Step 3: If you find any inconsistencies, rectify them as required. This will be to update your documented pest map to reflect what is actually in practice.
That is it – just an easy one to start off. I would love to know how you went with this Food Safety HACCP Challenge so just leave a comment below this post. You can also let me know on Twitter or Instagram by using #FSHChallenge
