Food Safety: Managing The HACCP Way

HACCP, or the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point system, is a process control system that identifies where hazards might occur in the food production process and puts into place stringent actions to take to prevent the hazards from occurring.
Hazard analysis and critical control points or HACCP is a systematic preventive approach to food safety from biological, chemical, and physical hazards in production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe, and designs measurements to reduce these risks to a safe level.


  • Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 
  • Actual examples of foodborne illness outbreaks 
  • Discussion of major food allergens 
  • Time-temperature control for safety of potentially hazardous foods 
  • Sequence for hand washing and avoiding recontamination of hands 
  • Provisions regarding the re-service of food
This is a very essential qualification especially for individuals who are currently working or intend to work as Quality controllers, Food Safety Specialists or anyone who simply works with food.
