Tips for Passing Food Safety Audits During the Pandemic

Register Now!

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted operations for food processing facilities and their food safety protocols. As the restrictions on non-employees being allowed into many facilities were in place, many in-person audit visits were missed or moved to a virtual platform. As in-person audits resume, you need to be ready! Unfortunately, pausing your pest management program or ignoring minor pest issues during the pandemic could cause you to fail your next food safety inspection. A failed audit can tarnish your business’s reputation and even lead to lost profits.

Join board-certified entomologist and Orkin Technical Services Manager Frank Meek for a free webinar where he will discuss tips and best practices to be ready for the pest control portion of your food safety audits. Frank has provided hundreds of pre-audits for food processing clients in all areas around the globe and knows exactly what auditors look for regarding your pest management plan and food safety.

A Q&A with the speaker will follow the presentation.
