Poultry Processing Plant

Employee Training

Why are we here today

Why are we here today?

  • A vision

    • A need to provide quality poultry to the BC market

  • A well-maintained plant

    • Provincially-inspected

  • A group of good employees

    • Some experienced

    • Some new to processing

What are we going to learn

What are we going to learn?

  • What is “Food Safety”?

  • Processing plant principles

    • Surroundings / building exterior and interior

    • Equipment / Processing line

  • Good work practices

    • Preventing cross-contamination

  • Good Personal Hygiene

  • Good cleaning practices

  • What is HACCP?

Food safety is a concern for our company

Food safety is a concern for our company

  • We take pride in producing safe poultry products

  • If product is unsafe, people can get sick

  • Our customers require safe food products

  • Government demands that we produce meat under good conditions

Why worry about food safety

Why worry about food safety?

  • Customer illness or dissatisfaction may result in:

    • Unfavourable publicity

    • Loss of customers, volume and profit

    • Legal action or prosecution

  • Food spoilage

    • Product / dollar loss

    • Unsightly product / unsanitary conditions

       you may not have a job at your plant!

Do you eat where someone got sick?

Who is my customer?

$$$$ - where have they gone?

I need a job!!

How do people get sick

How do people get sick?

  • From contaminated air (small droplets in the air)

  • From touching contaminated surfaces

  • From eating contaminated food

     The source of illness is often a bacteria or a virus!

Are you producing unsafe food?

Bacteria grow on food

Bacteria grow on food

  • Bacteria can multiply rapidly

  • They need the right temperature and moisture conditions

  • Most bacteria grow best between room and body temperature

    • They can double in number in 30 minutes

    • The danger zone is considered to be from 4 to 60C

  • Keep product refrigerated when not being processed

Bacteria can cause disease or spoil food

Bacteria can cause disease or spoil food

  • We can’t see bacteria (need a microscope)

  • It is easy to forget about bacteria when we can’t see them easily

  • We can carry bacteria into the plant on our hands, face, hair, clothes, feet

Communicable diseases

Communicable Diseases

  • Disease is easily transferred from one person to another

  • Hepatitis A and Norwalk virus (norovirus) can be transferred by food

  • A person who is sick should not work with food -> contact supervisor

How do we contaminate food

How do we contaminate food?

  • The main reason for wearing company uniforms (smocks, etc) is to keep our clothes from contaminating food

    • NOT keeping our clothes clean!

  • We need to keep ourselves clean so that we don’t contaminate the food we produce

  • We need to follow company practices to keep product contact surfaces safe

We have bacteria in our body

We have bacteria in our body

  • In our mouth (tongue/teeth) / nasal cavities (sinuses)

    • When we cough and sneeze, we spread them around

    • When we blow our noses, we often get them on our hands

  • In our digestive systems

    • Our large intestine is a “factory” that uses bacteria to break down solid waste

Up to 50% of fecal waste is bacteria

Prevent cross contamination

Prevent cross-contamination

  • Cross-contamination occurs when bacteria move from one object to another

  • Contaminants may include:

    • Biological hazards (harmful microbes)

    • Physical hazards (metal / wood / glass)

    • Chemical hazards (cleaners / lubricants)

  • Use Good Work Practices

Detect and eliminate cross contamination

Detect and eliminate cross-contamination

  • Good personal hygiene practices eliminate human-carried items

    • Personal effects / hair / skin / bacteria

  • Pest control eliminates bacteria from insects, rodents, birds

  • Sanitation keeps a facility clean so it doesn’t contaminate the product

  • Temperature controls growth to minimize microorganisms

We need to practice good personal hygiene at work

We need to practice good personal hygiene at work

  • Keep ourselves clean

  • Wash hands before touching food or food contact surfaces

  • Follow provincial Meat Regulations

Cfia regulations
