We started off the year discussing the importance of participating within a Proficiency Testing (PT) program if you are generating internal testing results within your facility. Without this valuable information, your company may be at risk due to not knowing with 100% accuracy that the results being generated are true. In the world of food safety today, this should not be one of those toss a coin moments. Simple but true – if you are generating your own results, MAKE SURE you are participating in a PT program!
One of the many KEY responsibilities when working in Food Safety is to provide an accurate result. This ensures that our customers’ products going out to the public are safe from bacteria and pathogens; organisms that could cause contamination, launch a recall and ultimately be detrimental to the customer and consumer.
