Newly-proposed FDA rule may require specific training procedures

Companies may need to provide training to be in compliance with newly-proposed FDA rule.

Companies may need to provide training to be in compliance with newly-proposed FDA rule.

Producers and transporters of food could be affected by a newly-proposed rule from the FDA that will require specific sanitary transportation practices. Under the rule, which is part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) of 2011, carriers, receivers and shippers of food will be required to comply with safety rules and procedures intended to reduce the chances of contamination or conditions that could lead to illness in humans or animals. 

To ensure compliance with the new rules, companies will need to provide employee training. Companies that do not adhere to the new regulations, once they go into effect, could be subject to penalties. Some of the proposed measures of the rule, outlined on the FDA website, include specific transportation operations procedures, such as appropriate temperature control adjustments while transporting food, and providing training to ensure that employees are able to carry out sanitary food transportation practices. 

It is important for companies in FDA regulated industries to stay in compliance with FDA rules and regulations. Failure to do so could result in fines or other penalties that could be avoided by providing proper employee training. Although the rule is not slated to go into effect until 2016, companies that wish to stay up to date on compliance issues might want to start thinking about a plan to train employees about sanitation procedures. 

Sometimes employee training can be a monumental undertaking. Fortunately, a learning management system enables companies to provide comprehensive employee training in an efficient and effective way that can save employers time and money. By making sure employees are well-versed in safety procedures, they are better enabled to adhere to guidelines, and in turn, ensure that your company stays in compliance with important FDA regulations.
