Our customers are role models to the entire food industry for food safety training and compliance
Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 15, 2008
Alchemy Systems, the leader in innovative, proven training solutions for foodservice employees, has been selected by a number of major food manufacturers to help combat food safety challenges and regulatory compliance issues through employee training. Recent product recalls and improper animal-handling incidents have spurred a need for updated food safety initiatives that will restore confidence in consumers. By implementing Alchemy's unique group-based training platform, SISTEM, companies such as the American Foods Group (AFG), Buckhead Beef, Kerry Inc., Olymel and Tyson Foods Corporation have targeted workforce education to promote the prevention of similar food safety incidents.
"Our customers are role models to the entire food industry for food safety training and compliance," said Steve Merrill, vice president of Alchemy Systems. "In addition to training their employees with our OSHA, HACCP and SQF compliance courses, they have used the customizing features of SISTEM to add courses unique to their equipment and food safety initiatives."
Buckhead Beef implements SISTEM training for all of its new-hire training and weekly safety meetings. Brye Wiskman, Risk Manager at Buckhead Beef, said the features of SISTEM give her confidence in her safety briefings.
"I know that by the end of the week, all 400 employees at both of our locations will be trained," remarked Wiskman. "And, since I can add my own company specific videos, presentations and quiz questions, I am confident they all understand. I know that using SISTEM has saved me hours and hours of time each week. Besides the time saving, I know that each meeting is delivered the same and every employee is being trained exactly alike. This is especially important with my Spanish-speaking employees. I no longer need to worry about poor translations."
SISTEM is a ground-breaking training management solution used by more than 400 food-processing plants across the US and Canada to effectively train in-plant personnel and provide audit-ready reports. The SISTEM platform is applicable to, and used in a wide range of plants that process all types of food products including meat and poultry, dairy, produce, confections and pet food. SISTEM is designed to make training simple and successful right out-of-the-box approach.
The adoption of SISTEM training brings a positive outlook to an industry battling troublesome food safety issues. Incorporating consistent and effective training is a fundamental way companies like AFG, Tyson, and Buckhead Beef are reinforcing current food safety techniques and regulatory compliance with their employees.
