Employee safety is vital in the proper functioning of any business. Safe employees also mean that proper processes will be in place. This will mean that your food business will be able to uphold higher food safety standards. But how do you marry these two ideas together? This week’s web seminar will help you by providing two different approaches.
Summary of Web Video: Food Safety and Employee Safety – a behavioural approach to create synergy by integrating two agendas
This basis for risk assessment is “Identify – Evaluate – Control” – this is true for any kind of risk, including food safety risks and risks associated with employee safety and health. In both cases, catastrophe can occur due to technical failure or human error. A behavioural based risk management approach stipulates the human behaviour is involved in all failure, even if it is classified as “technical”. A behavioural based management system should not be separately implemented for food safety and employee safety. This redundancy prevents pooling of resources and lowers effectiveness. In this webinar, we will focus on those areas that can and should be integrated and learn how to effectively implement an Integrated Management System.
