Program Description

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

This program is also available as an instructor-led webinar: Sanitary Design for Food Plants - Webinar.

A major contributor to the survival of pathogens in equipment and the environment is lack of proper sanitary design, resulting in hard-to-clean microbial niches. This course helps you understand the principles of sanitary design and covers requirements and industry standards for new equipment design and installation to meet the highest standards of hygiene. Permanent and demonstrably effective solutions to pathogen findings in the environment and equipment are required to manage the risk to the consumer, avoid regulatory action, and protect your business.

What You’ll Do:

  • Troubleshoot sanitation issues
  • Evaluate food plant case studies and scenarios to assess sanitary design
  • Determine the sanitary design requirements for various facility expansion projects and equipment purchases
  • Use the American Meat Institute (AMI) checklist to assess sanitary design
