From the organizers:
Who Should Attend:
Fruit and vegetable growers and others interested in learning about produce safety, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), and co-management of natural resources and food safety. This training is perfect for growers who would benefit from more in depth discussion of the PSR regulation, hands on demonstrations, and audit preparation.
Over the course of 2 days, seven hours of classroom time will be spent covering content contained in the seven standardized PSA modules. In addition to learning about produce safety best practices, key parts of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements are outlined within each module. There will be
additional time scheduled for on-farm demonstrations, USDA GAP audit preparation, questions and discussion, so participants should come prepared to share their experiences and produce safety questions.
The PSA Grower Training course is one way to satisfy the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement outlined in § 112.22(c) that requires ‘At least one supervisor or responsible party for your farm must have successfully completed food safety training at least equivalent to that received under standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by the Food and Drug Administration.
