Introduction to HACCP

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is an internationally recognized system for reducing the risk of safety hazards in food.

A HACCP System requires that potential hazards are identified and controlled at specific points in the process.

  • Biological
  • Chemical
  • Physical

Any company involved in the manufacturing, processing or handling of food products can use HACCP to minimize or eliminate food safety hazards in their product.

What HACCP is not:

  • HACCP is not a Quality Control system
  • HACCP is not a government program (although there are regulatory requirements for companies to have a HACCP program in place. Visit for information)

Outcome of the Training

Building a HACCP System based on the following:

  • Implementing a Prerequisite programs to ensure a hygienic environment, and good manufacturing processes for personnel that reduce the risk of contamination of the food product.
  • HACCP Plans implement controls to make sure the hazards are eliminated or controlled to ensure acceptable levels in the food product.

According to the Regulation Governing General Hygiene Requirements For Food Premises, The Transportation Of Food And Related Matter R 638, all food handlers must receive general hygiene training to ensure food safety can be maintained.

The regulation define food handlers as : a person who in the course of his or her normal routine work on food premises, directly handles or comes into contact with packaged or unpackaged food, food equipment and utensils, or food contact surfaces and is therefore expected to comply with food hygiene requirements.
