Arizona Leafy Greens adds to Food Safety Training Kit

Arizona Leafy Greens Food Safety Training Kit has a new component specifically designed for supervisory roles and personnel who conduct daily field assessments. “Module 4: Pre-Harvest and Daily Harvest Environmental Assessments” addresses the industry’s need to train those responsible for monitoring potential environmental contaminants.

“The development of this particular module was probably the most complex of all of our efforts,” said Vicki-Lynne Scott, technical subcommittee chairperson and board member of the Arizona Leafy Greens Food Safety Committee. “It’s highly technical, and covers a lot of ‘what-ifs’ as well as provides templates to encourage uniformity in monitoring.”

The Food Safety Training Kit is a tool that addresses safe food handling practices in the field. The bilingual program has been widely used by the leafy greens industry, and serves as a model for creating uniform standards and practices. The program was designed to ensure compliance with federal regulations for food safety, including anticipated Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) standards.
