Integrated Risk Management Systems Consider it Safe Background. Why do aged care centers need a food safety plan? What systems and processes need to be put in place? Steps to develop a food safety plan. Software to assist in the development and maintenance of food safety plans. Key features and Benefits of the Haccp Enterprise Action tool
Integrated Risk Management Systems Consider it Safe Why do we need food safety plans? Vulnerable populations may suffer a range of health problems and many people may be immuno-suppressed, making them more susceptible to food poisoning.(1) The latest Australian model food bill has been agreed by the Australian heads of government. The new model bill dramatically increases the penalties for offences. (up to $100,000 and or 2 years prison for individuals and up to $500,000 for corporations.).(2) Residents, patients, the community, employees, shareholders, and suppliers benefit from a good corporate image. Proposed Government legislation requires all food premises to have a food safety plan.
Integrated Risk Management Systems Consider it Safe What systems need to be in place? The Government standards for food safety are: Standard Food Safety Programs (proposed) Standard Food Safety Practices and General Requirements Standard Food premises and equipment (3) The model food safety bill suggests that a documented food safety plan complying with standards can be used as defense of due diligence. (2) The accepted industry system for food safety is called the Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points (HACCP). This system produces a documented food safety plan. To be effective the food safety plan must be tailored to the specific business environment in which it is used. You can not simply buy it off the shelf.
Integrated Risk Management Systems Consider it Safe Before developing your plan Management commitment A budget to develop the plan Training and an understanding of food safety Either a) Training and experience in the development of HACCP based food safety plans. Or b) Appointment of a suitably qualified consultant Resources to develop/ implement/ administer the plan on an ongoing basis. Development of a HACCP based food safety plan Internal and external audits of the plan for accreditation
Integrated Risk Management Systems Consider it Safe 14 steps to developing a plan 1.Designate someone responsible for the plan 2.Assemble a team of people who work across the business 3.Describe the food and its distribution 4.Identify the intended use and consumers of the food 5.Develop flow diagrams to identify all of the steps in your process 6.Confirm the flow diagram on site 7.Identify food safety hazards for each step in the flow diagram 8.Determine the hazards that are critical for food safety 9.Establish safe limits for the critical hazards 10.Establish a system to monitor and control the critical hazards 11.Establish actions to take if critical hazards occur 12.Verify that the food safety plan is working 13.Write appropriate procedures and keep critical hazard records 14.Revise and update the plan on an ongoing basis

This means that people with only limited computer skills can effectively maintain the plan. If you are using qualified consultants they can modify the plan over the internet and save time and money. You will also have a plan that is always up to date. The structure of the software application will ensure that you do not miss any important steps in your plan. The software automatically generates record sheets, reports and data entry tables and stores your procedures.
