Training with BSI

How can you improve your business’ food safety culture?

Every food/ beverage business has a food safety culture. A food safety culture’s maturity will vary over different companies, sites and potentially even teams. Think of maturity as an assessment of how your food business makes food safety decisions, and how the people in that business act on food safety every day. A maturity model can help you highlight areas of strength and weakness. It can also act as a roadmap to help you engage colleagues who you might ultimately ask to change behaviors or help others to do so.

During the BSI 1 day training course on food safety culture, you’ll discover how to measure the maturity of your food safety culture, learning practical techniques such as nudging, anchoring and building a coalition to drive successful, visible change. Under the guidance of your tutor, you’ll create a food safety culture improvement action plan during the workshop to take back for implementation into your organization.
