What is a Contamination Control Strategy?
A Contamination Control Strategy is a plan for reducing or eliminating the risk of contamination in food and beverage production environments. It involves identifying potential sources of contamination, developing procedures to reduce the risk of contamination, and periodically monitoring and assessing the effectiveness of the strategy. This template provides a framework for developing and implementing a successful Contamination Control Strategy.
What's included in this Contamination Control Strategy template?
- 3 focus areas
- 6 objectives
- 6 projects
- 6 KPIs
Each focus area has its own objectives, projects, and KPIs to ensure that the strategy is comprehensive and effective.
Who is the Contamination Control Strategy template for?
This Contamination Control Strategy template is designed for food and beverage production teams who need to develop strategies to minimize contamination risks. It provides a structured approach to developing, implementing and monitoring a Contamination Control Strategy.
1. Define clear examples of your focus areas
A focus area is an area of the Contamination Control Strategy that needs to be addressed. Examples of focus areas could include hygiene, equipment, training, and environmental factors. Each focus area should have clear objectives that are measurable and actionable.
2. Think about the objectives that could fall under that focus area
Objectives should be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound. They should be focused on reducing risk, improving performance, or increasing efficiency.
Examples of some objectives for the focus area of Hygiene could be: Reduce Contamination Risk, and Increase Quality Assurance.
3. Set measurable targets (KPIs) to tackle the objective
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are measurable targets used to measure the progress of a strategy. KPIs should be chosen based on their relevance to the objectives and their ability to be measured.
An example of a KPI for the focus area of Hygiene could be: Reduce Contamination incidents.
4. Implement related projects to achieve the KPIs
Projects (actions) are activities that will be implemented to achieve the KPIs. Projects should be planned in detail, with clear timelines and measurable outcomes.
An example of a project related to Hygiene could be: Develop Contamination Control Plan.
5. Utilize Cascade Strategy Execution Platform to see faster results from your strategy
Cascade Strategy Execution Platform is a tool for creating and managing Contamination Control Strategies. It allows users to track progress against KPIs, and identify areas of improvement so that strategies can be adapted as needed.
