About the Webinar

It’s estimated that more than half of food safety professionals feel their company is a “leader” in food safety. Yet, 67% of their employees don't consistently follow food safety procedures.* And with emerging technology and automation changing the ways plant workers perform their jobs - this statistic will only worsen. Ineffective training translates to lost productivity, accidents, line stoppages, costly recalls, and it damages food safety culture. Clearly, the 2020 workforce needs an updated approach to training.

Join this month’s training webinar where we address this challenge head-on with industry expert Laura Dunn Nelson, VP Food Safety at Intertek Alchemy. In this webinar, Laura will take a deep dive into new, highly effective food safety training methodologies that have produced dramatic, documented results. Using her strategies, independent research revealed a 38% improvement in the alignment of intent and employee behaviors, across multiple facilities.
