Program Description

This program is also available as an onsite offering. Please email us for a quote.

This program is also available as an instructor-led webinar: Root Cause Analysis for Corrective and Preventive Action - Webinar.

Root cause analysis (RCA) is a method for problem-solving that identifies permanent practical solutions. RCA is required as part of corrective action in GFSI-benchmarked schemes. If you struggle with repeat non-conformances or problems that seem hard to solve, this course provides you with the tools for finding effective solutions to food safety and quality issues.

What You’ll Do:

  • Select an appropriate RCA tool based on the nature of the problem
  • Identify which issues are truly significant and prioritize efforts
  • Discuss ways to identify potential factors causing problems and select the most likely cause(s)
