More food manufacturing and processing companies are taking a closer look at behavioral coaching on plant floors even after completion of classroom training and examinations, according to “The Global Food Safety Training Survey 2014” conducted by Alchemy Systems, LP, Austin, Texas, and Campden BRI, Chipping Campden, UK.
Studying industry needs to generate results
In order to stay at the forefront of technology, Alchemy frequently sponsors and participates in industry studies. The results of these studies are used as guidelines for improving our products and services.
Today progressive companies are using corrective observations processes to drive behavioral change and long-term cultural change. This study shows the combination of effective training, corrective observations, and coaching can improve safety and productivity performance by up to 26%.
An annual survey by Campden BRI, Alchemy, the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and Safe Quality Food (SQF) addresses the growing industry appetite for successful food safety training protocols. The findings are an excellent way for food manufacturers and processors to benchmark training performance against their competitors and identify any opportunities for deployment.
