Listeriosis is a bacterial strain that easily incubates in food establishments and can cause a nasty infection in people that have compromised immune systems such as the elderly, newborns, and pregnant women. This is why your business needs to have its BRC certification as well as proper ISO 9000 training in place. Dealing with process safety management is something that every business that handles food needs to think about and your BRC certification is a great step in this direction. Once you have achieved BRC certification coupled with ISO 14001 training, you will be able to operate your business with much greater confidence because you will know that the health inspector will be off your back and will have a competitive advantage over other companies who have not adapted to include the same standards.
Just as those in the agricultural business must adhere to the quality and safety standards imposed by FAMI QS in regards to the ingredients used in their feed, your employees must have their food safety certifications so that they can operate within your business safely. By meeting all Iso 9001 requirements, it will become much easier for your company to operate not just efficiently, but safely. In addition, if you have all of your employees get their servsafe certification, they will be even more equipped to do well at your establishment. Overall, this will equate to you running a business that is not unsafe to the people that work there as well as its customers.
