Implementing a food safety management system is important for a safer consumer, safer employees and a workplace with safe
work policies. Food Safety systems are designed to manage the processes designed to keep consumers safe, prevent recalls
and eliminate cross contamination. The systems also work to prevent workplace incidents that can impact workers, their
families, and employers. Most traditional programs are reactive, thus addressing the concern after the incident occurs
versus preventive in nature.
An FSMS helps ensure the coordination of resources that defines the roles and responsibilities of the organization, management, and employees, creating a proactive approach to managing food safety and risk. Using an FSMS helps the organization achieve a clearer evaluation of safety risks. Implementing several aspects of the FSMS allows the organization to focus on achieving goals, tracking performance, and monitoring outcomes that can move the system from basic to more sophisticated. The system is designed to meet the requirements of certifying bodies at all levels.
The overall goal of the system is to achieve a level of continuous improvement through risk management, mitigation, and a reduction of non-conformities. Improvement results from knowledge and experience working within the system and information gathered from inspections, observations, and safety situations. Additionally, an FSMS helps an organization evaluate and react when new processes, organizational changes, and regulatory requirements are implemented.
A food safety management system (FSMS) is an organizational tool that manages food safety and risk. An FSMS helps evaluate all food
safety issues, concerns, and risks. It also helps organizations respond to and meet food safety regulations, industry certifications,
and company-specific policies and procedures.
FSMSs are designed to help organizations:
