Best practices sanitation and safety in food and other industries

One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

Product safety and quality are highly dependent on proper cleaning and sanitization of process equipment. Improper cleaning and poor sanitation can result in product loss due to cross contamination; degradation of taste, color and odor; reduced shelf life and spoilage. These principles apply not just to the food and beverage industries, but also to the production of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and even soaps, detergents and paints.

This webcast’s first presentation will look at how automation is applied to sanitization in batch, blending, procedural and continuous control processes to enhance product quality and safety. It will also discuss how production data from the automated processes can be used for regulatory documentation as well as continuous improvement and cost savings. Attend this webinar to review the basic needs for effective sanitation and how automation can be implemented in a wide range of process applications.

Connected workers are the future of every facility or worksite across the planet.

A second webcast presentation will look at how workforce wearable technologies offer a unique means of gathering data, automating & integrating, and address significant management challenges. Use case examples from deployments of wearables in food packaging and processing environments will be shared, with findings and insights related to process & quality improvements, simplifying management processes, potential hazards and risks detected, and positively impacting safety culture.

Learning objectives:

  • Explore the causes and impact of poor sanitization
  • Learn the basic needs for effective sanitation
  • Define what HACCP is and how it’s used to achieve good sanitization
  • Streamlining processes with workforce wearable technologies
  • How automation supports product quality and safety
