Who Should Attend? This course is ideal for supervisors, team leaders and line managers working within your food business and who are, or are about to become, responsible for carrying out audits and inspections.
This includes internal or third party auditors, enforcement officers and people responsible for verifying HACCP, with the main emphasis of the qualification being on practical inspection and audit skills in the workplace.
It would also be particularly useful for supervisors undertaking either an internal audit or supplier approval and would also benefit your business if you are seeking BRC certification.
Why’s It Important? Audits play a fundamental role in certifying that your business abides to proper food safety practices at all times. Audits and inspections are a crucial component of maintaining food safety standards and certification; because they provide transparency and assurance that standards are being maintained.
If your business has to undergo regular British Retail Consortium (BRC) or customer audits, given that your reputation and lucrative contracts are often at stake, it makes sense to be proactive and regularly conduct internal audits ahead of official external audits.
Regular internal audits give you the opportunity to identify areas of concern and rectify them before any external audits take place. They help to ensure that all paperwork relating to HACCP and other standard operating procedures are present and up-to-date; and that all employees are competent and have been trained in the delivery of those procedures.
What Will You Gain? By attending this auditing and inspection skills course, your employees will know and be able to apply the knowledge relating to the role of an auditor within your business.
On returning to the workplace, they will be able to carry out effective audits and inspections confidently. They will also know how to collect and then analyse the findings and present them in report format.
