Reducing Documentation by Building Food Safety and Quality Teams

This 2 module 1.5 hour prerecorded course is designed to establish a combined team approach to implementing and maintaining food safety and quality and to establish a system that greatly simplifies documentation of corrective and preventive actions taken by team members.

The training addresses two goals:

1.  Reduce documentation requirements using the team solution tracking sheet (TSTS)

2.  Create a unified and focused cooperative approach to continuously improving both food quality and safety under a single team system.

The agenda for the course is as follows:

  • Basic Quality Concepts
  • Basic Food Safety Concepts
  • The Food Safety & Quality Planning Team
  • Team Facilitators, Leaders, Secretaries and Members
  • Basic team building, setting team targets and goals
  • Establishing organizational teamwork
  • Functional and cross functional teams
  • Reducing documentation requirements with the TSTS
  • Team trigger mechanisms
  • Production teams
  • Establishing team rules
  • Getting rapid response from supervisors, engineers and other support staff
  • Record Keeping and Reporting (Documenting with the TSTS)

The course is recommended for quality and food safety personnel but can be later used to train personnel from other functions to participate in improving both food safety and quality.
