SGS, a global leader in professional training, is pleased to announce that it will be launching a course on designing and implementing an environmental monitoring program (EMP) for food facilities.

Environmental monitoring plays a critical role in food safety. It is required by the FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Food rule when there is a risk of ready-to-eat (RTE) food being contaminated by an environmental pathogen.

Course attendees will learn:

  • When and where to test for pathogens
  • How to determine the pathogen of concern
  • Sampling methods, locations, frequency
  • Identifying the primary contamination source and investigation sampling tactics
  • The best methods of corrective action
  • How to develop risk-based EMPs specific to the facility

Participants will take part in interactive workshops and discussions and learn via case studies and practical examples.
