Training Coupled With Coaching Improves Food Safety Compliance At Processing Plants

October 29, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Alchemy Systems, a company that focuses on building safety cultures in food businesses, reports that training reinforced by corrective coaching by front-line supervisors can change employee behaviors and improve safety and productivity by as much as 26 percent. It’s a critical issue in the food industry, where recalls and highly-publicized contamination incidents have aroused consumer concerns about the safety of the food supply. The research was conducted at food manufacturing and processing plants in the United States over 15 months. The study found that the pre-training compliance rate was only 68 percent. After training, compliance improved to 82 percent. After three observations, compliance increased to 94 percent.
