SafetyChain SQF Webinar Focuses on Key Best Practices to Demonstrating Continuous Improvement in Your SQF Program

500+ Registered to Hear Guest Speaker Cathy Crawford, Vice President of HACCP Consulting Group and Registered SQF Trainer, Discuss the Challenges and Potential Solutions for Complying With the New SQF Continuous Improvement Requirements

SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwired - April 29, 2013) - On April 25, 2013, a large crowd of food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) professionals -- along with operations and C-Suite attendees -- joined SafetyChain Software for an informative webinar, "How to Demonstrate Continuous Improvement in Your SQF Program," with special guest speaker, Cathy Crawford, a noted FSQA consultant and registered SQF auditor and trainer.

This was an important webinar because one of the new requirements for last July's SQF update is the ability to demonstrate continuous improvement in food safety and quality programs. Some of the key areas Cathy addressed were:

  • Examining code requirements
  • The importance of management commitment and review
  • Identifying, documenting and analyzing trends in safety and quality
  • Steps toward improvement
  • Data management and document control
  • Food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) verification, validation and corrective action
  • Setting food safety system goals
  • HACCP System maintenance and support

Cathy was joined by Barbara Levin, SafetyChain SVP and Co-Founder, who discussed how technology can be a critical tool for creating a central repository of FSQA data for trending; identifying opportunities for and documenting corrective actions; ensuring SOPs are followed; alerting out-of-spec processes/products; HACCP program automation; and being audit ready on-demand.
