Food Processing Health & Safety Standards

food guideFood Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2016/17 – Released

People working within the food manufacturing, handling or processing industry must meet standards to ensure the highest quality and safety of their food. Standards also need to be met, where health and safety is concerned, for the workers involved throughout the food handling process. Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with Food Standards Australia New Zealand and Australian Food Microbiology, has released the latest edition of the Food Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety, addressing current health and safety topics, this year with interactive Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities.

Incorporating this innovative technology into the Guide has created a space for interaction and a window for more information and resources relevant for the food manufacturing industry. Simply scanning over any AR capable content using the free Pro-Vis AR App will allow users to instantly download relevant content to their smart device.

The Guide covers a range of topics including:

· Food Standard’s product recall procedures.

· Machine access, cleaning and deactivation safety.

· Sanitisation and hygiene.

· Dust in the food environment.

It is important to consider how failures to comply with standards in the food manufacturing industry, with particular reference to hygiene, contributes to the three deaths per fortnight and 11,500 illnesses per day in Australia. How to implement control measures and successful health and safety practices can be accessed via the Guide and the accompanying AR features.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Food Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2016/17. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.”
