January 28, 2020, at 2 PM Eastern

Presented by Charles Otto, EAS Independent Consultant and former Environmental Health Officer and Deputy Chief at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

While the diligent food safety manager assumes their routine Food Code compliance procedures are sufficient to protect against the introduction of pathogens at their retail establishment, but are they? 

Active Managerial Control (AMC) is a preventive food safety management system (FSMS) that can prevent the risk of foodborne illness through targeted standards, employee engagement, and continuing proactive appraisal. Once issues are identified by self-assessment, quick reaction can facilitate mitigation of those risks before they become a problem for consumers.

Learn how to design and implement AMC risk-based policies, training, and verification procedures for preemptive risk reduction. Explore the details of successful AMC development and implementation with coverage of resources to assist small to large operations. Join EAS Independent Consultant, Charles Otto, for an in-depth look at this crucial safety protocol for retail food establishments and ensure your FSMS is robust and your customers are safe.

In this webinar you will:

  • Understand how AMCs enhance Food Code compliance procedures
  • Learn how to design and implement AMC risk-based policies, training and verification procedures
  • Explore the details of successful AMC development and implementation
