Feb 7 PSA Grower Training The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule is the first federally regulated standard for growing, harvesting, packing, and holding fresh produce in an effort to reduce microbial contamination and foodborne illness outbreaks. If you grow fruits or vegetables, attend a training for information about best practices, risk management, and regulatory requirements. The PSA Grower Training Course is one way to satisfy the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement. During this one-day workshop, trainers will spend approximately eight hours of instruction time covering content contained in the seven modules below. • Introduction to Produce Safety • Worker Health, Hygiene, and Training • Soil Amendments • Wildlife, Domesticated Animals, and Land Use • Agricultural Water (Part I: Production Water; Part II: Postharvest Water) • Postharvest Handling and Sanitation • How to Develop a Farm Food Safety Plan Registration has been extended to 2/2!
