Risk-Based Thinking in Food Production Training Course

Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) approved food safety management standards are widely adopted in the world. They form the foundation for a system of processes required to provide safe, legally compliant, good quality, genuine foods and relevant products or services that meet customer applicable requirements.

ISO 31000:2018 Risk Management Guidelines introduces the concept of the context of the organization and the implementation of your food safety management system (FSMS) should be a strategic decision influenced by this context. 

The standards also require your organization to consider:

  • Alignment of the FSMS with the strategic direction and culture of your organization, products and consumer requirements
  • Determining the processes needed to achieve your intended results
  • Addressing risks and opportunities arising from the context of your organization

The determination of risks and opportunities should be carried out at both organizational and operational levels. This training focuses on determination of risks and opportunities at an organizational level.


This training course will provide you with knowledge and understanding, as well as practical application, of these concepts so you can plan an FSMS that meets the intended results within the appropriate context of your organization.

How will I benefit?

This course will help you:

  • Understand your organizational context, risk-based thinking and process approach concepts necessary for establishing an FSMS relevant to your organization’s strategy
