TSA - HACCP Training for RABC Team
As mentioned in the last CEO update, as a part of our support for the Interim Healthcare Laundry Certification, we have scheduled a virtual Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) training to equip your team.
HACCP is the leading hygiene safety management system and it forms the basis for the Risk Analysis and Biocontamination Control (RABC). An RABC plan led by a competent person is an essential element to achieve the healthcare laundry standards certification. We have brought in CFA, an external certification body to run the HACCP training and all participants will be issued with a Knowledge Certification. The course has been subsidised for TSA members.
Event: HACCP Training (Knowledge Certification)
Please note the HACCP training is desirable for all laundries to develop enough competence in your management and dedicated teams, especially when operating in the current landscape. If you are considering IHLC, this is a must attend training for your core RABC team and management. If you would like to register, please email Emma.

It definitely feels that winter is upon us and few would have thought last March that we would, as an industry, still be facing what is looking more and more likely, a very bleak one.

It has been a few weeks since the last update, hopefully some of you will have been able to get away and have had a well-deserved break.
