Massachusetts Food Safety HACCP Training

Massachusetts HACCP Training Requirements

About HACCP Training
Every operation serving or selling food needs to have a food safety system in place that is designed specifically to guarantee the food being served is safe to eat. This specific food safety system is called HACCP for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point. HACCP is a system comprised of 7 principles that are to be applied to a written food safety program focusing on the food in your operation. Source: FDA - HACCP Guidance

Massachusetts requires that a person-in-charge, an owner, or employee of a food establishment - (i.e., restaurants, markets, bakeries, bars, food trucks, commissaries, and food facilities that prepare, handle, or serve non-prepackaged potentially hazardous food) be a Certified Food Manager (CFM) or demonstrate knowledge of food safety as outlined in the FDA Food Code by successfully passing an accredited ANSI food safety certification exam.

Every Massachusetts eating establishment, with some exemptions, must employ or engage a Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM). This requirement was adopted in the Administrative Rules for Establishments licensed by the Health Inspection Program effective January 18, 2011. A certified food protection manager must be hired within 60 days of a new eating establishment opening or when a certified food protection manager leaves employment.

HACCP – Food Safety for Retail Food Establishments – 16hrs

Course Description
Accredited by the International HACCP Alliance, this course presents the characteristics and application of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), a risk prevention management methodology that applies appropriate science and technology to plan, control, and document safe food processes in a food facility, consistent with the FDA’s desire to implement a voluntary HACCP program.

The course introduces HACCP’s principles and concepts. The HACCP approach begins by identifying biological, chemical, and physical hazards associated with facility construction, equipment, employees, food, and supplies and then explains the scientifically validated hazard control procedures that prevent, eliminate, or reduce hazards to levels that protect public health.
